NH Labor has a new voice

Labor in New Hampshire has a new voice and it is that of Mark Hounsell. Later this week Mark will be named Executive Director of the NH State Building & Construction Trades Council. The full time position will allow him to combine his knowledge of politics and construction for the 8,000 members and 18 unions that make up this organization.

Given the recent shake-up of the AFL-CIO the naming of an Independent as the leader of this organization is particularly noteworthy.
