New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors Appoints
AnnMarie French Interim Executive Director

 

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors has appointed AnnMarie French to serve as interim executive director of the organization, effective Monday, December 4, 2017.

AnnMarie assumes the role of interim executive director following the departure of John Shea, who resigned from the role of executive director on December 1.

“The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s Board is so appreciative of AnnMarie’s commitment and dedication to the organization over the years,” said Mil Duncan, chair of the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors. “AnnMarie’s ability to think strategically about the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s role, her history with our work and our partners, and her contacts across the state make her the ideal person to lead the organization as we move through this transition.“

AnnMarie has served as the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute’s communications manager since joining the organization in January 2014. As interim executive director, AnnMarie will oversee the organization’s operations, communications, and public policy research.

The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute Board of Directors will initiate a search for a new executive director in early 2018.

The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute is an independent non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to exploring, developing, and promoting public policies that foster economic opportunity and prosperity for all New Hampshire residents, with an emphasis on low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

New Hampshire’s Minimum Wage Falls Further Behind

6 Jan 2020

The federal minimum wage is the lowest hourly wage that can be paid to most workers anywhere in the nation. Since its inception at the national level in 1938, when only certain workers were covered, the wage has increased and encompassed more types of employees over time. State law sets New Hampshire’s minimum wage to the federal minimum level, currently at $7.25 per hour. An individual working 40 hours per week at this wage will make about $15,000 per year, assuming they work all 52 weeks. This income level is below the federal poverty guidelines for all households other than a single person, and well below the levels for households that include a partner and children.
