The Executive Council isn’t just a group of advisors. Its members wield real power in the state and serve as a check on the Governor. Whether we’re talking about significant state contracts, pardons, or judicial nominations, it’s the Executive Council who has the final say. If that surprises you, you are far from alone. In fact, the power of New Hampshire’s Executive Council is unmatched by any other similar state body in the country.

Cornerstone Policy Research (501c3) was founded in 2000 by Karen Testerman, who became Cornerstone’s first executive director. Active in civic life, Karen had met many New Hampshire neighbors who shared her deep faith in God and her dedication to responsible citizenship. She launched Cornerstone Policy Research to help defend, promote, and protect families, faith and freedom in New Hampshire. Five years later, Cornerstone Action (501c4) was established as Cornerstone’s political advocacy division.
With dynamic and committed leadership from board members and directors, Cornerstone has become a respected New Hampshire resource for fact-based information on issues including the right to life, religious liberty, family life, and education. As Cornerstone prepares to enter its third decade, its mission statement stays true to its founder’s vision: Cornerstone is dedicated to a New Hampshire where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
