Ryan Audley Joins NHFPI Board of Directors

 

CONCORD, NH – The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute (NHFPI) announces the addition of Ryan Audley to the organization’s Board of Directors. Ryan Audley is president and CEO of R.S. Audley, Inc., based in Bow, New Hampshire.

“Ryan’s breadth of knowledge of New Hampshire’s transportation sector will be invaluable to NHFPI’s work to highlight the need for both short- and long-term investments in the state’s public infrastructure,” said John Shea, executive director of the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute. “A safe and reliable transportation system is essential to all Granite Staters, who travel each day to work and school, and to our business community and tourism industry, which rely on our roads to bring a steady flow of goods and people. New Hampshire’s economy depends on a strong transportation network, and on our ability to maintain our public infrastructure today and in the future.”

Since January 2015, Ryan Audley has served as president and CEO of R.S. Audley Inc., a family-owned construction company established by his grandfather in 1955. He previously served as vice president for four years, and held various project management and foreman roles in prior years. R.S. Audley, Inc. has managed numerous state and local transportation construction projects in New Hampshire, including the Little Bay Bridge reconstruction project in Newington-Dover and two contracts as part of the I-93 widening in Derry.

“New Hampshire’s transportation infrastructure, like that of most states, is suffering due to years of neglect,” said Ryan Audley. “I look forward to contributing to NHFPI’s work to enhance public understanding of this and other needs, and advance policy solutions that can help ensure New Hampshire makes wise budget choices that are guided by a long-term vision.”

Ryan Audley serves on the boards of the New Hampshire Good Roads Association and the New Hampshire Association of General Contractors. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Boston University, and currently resides in Bow, New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute is an independent nonprofit 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 Data Show Food Insecurity Levels Declining Prior to the COVID-19 Crisis

10 Sep 2020

According to data released on September 9 by the United States Department of Agriculture, food insecurity levels in New Hampshire continued to decline during 2019, prior to the onset of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The report outlines the trends of reduced food insecurity in the nation and in New Hampshire, declining from the higher levels resulting from the Great Recession of 2007 to 2009. The overall improvements to the state economy through 2019, along with the effectiveness of key nutritional aid programs, did contribute to lower levels of food insecurity, although the benefits of the economic recovery did not reach all Granite Staters in an equal or timely manner. Although food insecurity levels declined through the years preceding 2020, the current crisis facing Granite Staters is not reflected in these 2019 data. The recent economic pressures on many individuals and families with lower incomes in New Hampshire have been severe, and current levels of food insecurity are very likely to be substantially higher.
