Decision to close Statehouse bureau was short-sighted

Letter to the Editor

The decision by The Telegraph’s management to dissolve its Statehouse bureau in Concord underscores management’s inability to understand exactly what the mission of a newspaper is all about. It’s called a NEWSpaper for a reason, and the daily activity in and around state government is most definitely news that The Telegraph’s readers need.
