Bragdon's wise call: No question of his integrity
It comes as no surprise to those who know him that, having had time to consider the matter, Bragdon would take this course. We suspect that it is the personal and political integrity of the man that prevented him from realizing sooner that the dual roles of Senate president and head of LGC would be perceived as potential conflicts of interest.
The alternative to this way of governing is to have a "professional'' Legislature with huge salaries and bigger benefits, which usually leads to a smaller body (because the cost is so high), and to continued conflicts and out-and-out corruption on a scale that New Hampshire manages to avoid.
