NH Secrets, Legends and Lore, Podcast by Wayne D. King

For those who long for more civil times when Republicans and Democrats saw one another as the loyal opposition. Former state Senate President Ralph Hough gave New Hampshire a Senate to remember in 1992.

Wayne D. King was recently honored for his political column, “The View From Rattlesnake Ridge” by the New England Newspaper and Press Association.

Named as a defendant in the nationally renowned Claremont v. NH lawsuit over educational funding because of the constitutional office he held, Hough was a profile in courage when he filed a brief on behalf of the Plaintiff School Districts and testified before the NH Supreme Court, asking them to side with the schools.

That year the Supreme Court ruled on behalf of the schools and the children, though the struggle continues, this decision will likely set the precedent for future litigation. An interview with former NH Senator and Senate President Ralph Hough, New Hampshire treasure, Radical Centrist and education warrior.
