CONWAY — A hearty band of a few dozen souls, on a 185-mile anti-corruption march from Dixville Notch to Nashua, stopped at the Eastern Slope Inn recently to make their case for campaign finance reform.
The march, called the New Hampshire Rebellion, is led by Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig who was inspired by New Hampshire icon and campaign finance reform activist "Granny D." The late Monadnock region resident, Doris Haddock, at the age of 88, famously walked across the country in 1999 to call attention to the issue. In the 2000 presidential primary, then candidate John McCain (R-Arizona) made an issue of corruption and won the state. New Hampshire has the first Presidential Primary and a large block of politically educated and independent voters.
