David Saad, president of Right to Know NH, was awarded the Antonia Orfield Citizenship Award by the New England First Amendment Coalition last week. The NEFAC recognized David Saad for his work with RTKNH:
In 2013, David Saad and several other citizens formed Right to Know NH as a nonpartisan citizen coalition working to improve transparency of New Hampshire state, county, and local governments. As president of the coalition, Saad’s advocacy includes drafting legislation to strengthen the state’s Right to Know Law and testifying during legislative hearings. He developed training materials and conducts training seminars on the public’s right to know. In 2017, Saad served on a commission established by the New Hampshire Legislature to study alternative processes that could be used to resolve public grievances involving public records and open meetings. He played a key role in drafting the commission’s findings report and proposed legislation intended to establish an independent ombudsman and appeals commission.
Congratulations to our president, David Saad!
