Dear Friend,

Welcome to the Great State of New Hampshire and our Seacoast, one of the most vibrant and sought after places in the country. And that's not coming from me, but from the people at Money Magazine, AARP Magazine, and Fodor's Travel Guides —just to name a few.

New Hampshire is entering into one of the most exciting times in its history. Whether you’re a resident or a business owner, there are few places in the world where you can have it all—scenic beauty, the ocean, the mountains, the lakes, safe communities, no sales or income tax burdens, or traffic jams. In fact, businesses in the state are on the leading edge of the progressive national culture with work-from-home programs, flex time and other people-related initiatives. All made possible by our growing focus on the use of technology to increase efficiency, improve communication, and involve the citizens of this state in their future. I'm proud to say the trend is even transforming our "Live Free or Die" state government into a place where people can be involved in their government 24 hours a day—an important issue in a place where more than 85 percent of the population are connected to the web and actively using that resource in their everyday lives (New Hampshire is #2 in the country home internet access).

Our quality of life and our people are second to none—which is one of the reasons I moved my family and business to New Hampshire long ago. I invite you be part of our future and encourage you to check out all the benefits we offer—whether you're contemplating moving your family or business to New Hampshire. You can find out more about our state by visiting For more on our Seacoast region, be sure to check out the award-winning site at  

We hope you will consider becoming a part of our family. And if you have any questions or issues I can help with, call (603) 271-2121 or email me at [email protected]. My door is always open.
