A Regional Approach to New Hampshire

New Hampshire has always had an independent streak which continues down to its most local way of governing. Each small town with its own select-board, police and fire departments and with its own school district.  But now that Granite State's population has grown to over 1.3 million, many question whether a town by town form of government still works and if a regional approach might be better and a more economically viable way of doing business. Some towns have already been trying to consolidate but in a state known for its independent streak, it hasn't always come easy.  Today we explore the idea of regionalism in New Hampshire.
