Portsmouth City Council’s Legislative Subcommittee
The Portsmouth City Council’s Legislative Subcommittee reviews and tracks draft legislation and makes recommendations to the City Council to either support or oppose legislation. The Portsmouth City Council has adopted Principles for Legislative Positions that serve as guiding principles for City testimony before the General Court. The subcommittee meets regularly with our Senator and Representatives to review legislation of interest to the City. The Committee is comprised of Mayor Rick Becksted, Councilor Deaglan McEachern, Councilor Esther Kennedy and Councilor Paige Trace, and non-voting members City Manager Karen Conard and her City staff designee, Jane Ferrini. The Legislative Subcommittee meetings and Agenda and minutes are posted on the City’s website and the meetings with our Legislative Delegation are televised on Channel 22.
