Will the Executive Council address issues of gender equity? The answer to this question is not unanimous. The Executive Council is the only body of New Hampshire state government that is not subject to a policy that prohibits harassment and discrimination. I have promoted the adoption of a policy for months. I was finally able to bring the discussion to a head to place a policy on the Council’s agenda for a formal vote. Councilors Prescott and Pappas joined me in support of a policy. Councilors Wheeler and Kenney opposed a policy. Governor Sununu agreed to place a policy on the February 21, 2018 agenda for a formal up or down vote.
