The Forgotten Force in Our New Hampshire Government

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.
