Speaking of Commissioners and department heads, how about the agencies themselves?  Given our foray into Right To Know Requests to the NH Depart. of IT and Depart. of Environmental Services, I figured that I would venture a question / comment for a response: Question 8: GraniteGrok issued RTK requests against DES and DoIT for taxpayer …
