A few not-too-random thoughts from Tuesday’s New Hampshire elections.
Chris Sununu won a second term because he did a lot of things right in his first term; voters generally like to give first-termers another term; and his opponent gave them no reason to switch.
We think voters did the right thing by restoring “taxpayer standing’’ to our state constitution. Courts may have more frivolous cases to dismiss, but individual citizens with valid reasons to take a town or city to court, as they could for generations, can do so again.
We hope the unintended consequences of a sweeping “right to privacy’’ won’t be too numerous. But in amending the constitution, voters may have just established the Lawyers’ Permanent Relief Act.
