State Treasurer Monica Mezzapelle

Part 2, Article 67 of the New Hampshire Constitution establishes the position of the Treasurer of the State of New Hampshire. In accordance with the Constitution, the Treasurer is elected by a joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives (the General Court).

This election takes place on the first Wednesday of December following the biennial election when the new General Court meets for organizational purposes. In colonial periods the treasurer was appointed by the chief executive and frequently served as both secretary of the province and treasurer.

In addition to serving on numerous statutory Board and Commissions, the Treasurer supervises a 23-member office conducting a variety of financial and accounting functions, including the management and investment of between $200-$800 million in daily liquidity, state banking functions, debt management and compliance activities (issuance of notes and bonds), and the oversight of the abandoned property program.
