I enjoyed a free-wheeling discussion in Dedham today with five New Hampshire reporters who were selected as 2016 New England First Amendment Institute Fellows.
Kindred spirits, they are New Hampshire reporters who really care about the public’s right to know. They are all terrific, talented journalists and I am sure you know their work already.
“Since 2011, we have provided this annual three-day investigative journalism training to some of the best and brightest journalists in the region,” said Justin Silverman, executive director of the New England First Amendment Coalition, in a welcoming letter to the 25 journalists from around New England. Five are from New Hampshire news outlets.

Thanks Merrimack attorney Rick Gagliuso for leading the panel on New Hampshire right-to-know issues and for inviting me to come along for the ride. Thanks attorney Greg Sullivan for joining us. — Nancy West, founder New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism and our website InDepthNH.org.
