What’s New Hampshire news without our native son – the infamous lefty leaning cartoonist Mike Marland? Bland, boring and I’m bewildered and a bit bitter at just the thought of it.
After 29 years showcasing his talent for skewering the powers that be in the Concord Monitor, Mike Marland’s last Birch & Finch will run Dec. 31 and his last editorial cartoon will run Jan. 1 — without your help, that is.
We want him to continue his mission at the nonprofit New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism’s online news outlet InDepthNH.org. And he wants to come home.
“The GOP has taken over the New Hampshire State House. Donald Trump is the president of the United States. I can’t go yet,” Marland said.
But we need your tax-deductible underwriting help to bring Mike Marland home to InDepthNH.org.
We found him a nurturing home at InDepthNH.org. Now, we need your help to pay for his care and feeding. Call me please, Nancy West 603-738-5635. As history blends politics and madness, 2017 was created specifically for the political cartoonist – our Mike Marland.
We are also desperately seeking a right-leaning GOP NH editorial cartoonist to give Mike Marland a run for his money. We are an unbiased investigative news outlet so please call me if you’ve got what it takes. Nancy West 603-738-5635
