Call state Rep. Neal Kurk, R-Weare, a “privacy freak” and he’ll want to know how you got that information.
“That’s what people who want to run rampant over privacy rights say,” Kurk fires back, claiming they want to make him a pariah. He seems determined to oblige, refusing to have his picture taken or to divulge such routine information as his age. He took a Patrick Henry stand earlier this year when fighting the Real ID pilot program for New Hampshire. Centralized databases do not agree with this “Live Free or Die” Republican, who believes he stands in his state’s proud and stubborn libertarian tradition.
“If I’m a privacy freak,” he says, “so are the people of New Hampshire.”
New Hampshire Magazine knows where “It” is at. Each November, we identify the state’s most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual “It List.”
So what defines an “It” Person?
