New Hampshire's Community College system is made up of seven schools around the state. We check in with Chancellor Ross Gittell about the role the system plays in workforce development; Governor Chris Sununu increased money for the community college system in his budget proposal.  The boost comes after years of  frustration among staff about how the system is being run.
