Granite Memo will keep you up-to-date on New Hampshire politics.

If you’re interested in what’s happening in Granite State politics—whether you’re in Concord, Coös County, D.C., or somewhere in between—then Granite Memo is for you.

I’m here to keep things tidy and organized, so you can stay both up-to-date and focused on what matters.
