National news outlets swoop into New Hampshire every four years for our first-in-the-nation presidential primary. State outlets highlight major developments involving our governor, Executive Council, lawmakers and others in Concord. And local outlets offer much-needed insight into what's happening with leaders in our cities and towns.
But staying on top of all the politically consequential developments across the Granite State isn't easy – especially when you consider how local, state and federal trends intersect in a place known for its retail politics and highly engaged electorate. Nobody else does politics quite like we do.

Brief note from the Granite Memo founding editor: As a reporter and editor committed to ethical and professional journalism, my overall objective for Granite Memo is to build a sturdy platform for original reporting that complements the solid work already being produced by the NH press corps. To succeed, Granite Memo must become an essential tool for civically engaged Granite Staters.
I hope you'll join me in an ongoing conversation about what that looks like.
