The past few weeks have been as high-paced as ever as the newly elected legislators gear up for the 2012-2014 biennium. But I wanted to take a moment to tell you about what’s been going on in Concord.
At Organization Day on December 5th, New Hampshire’s new State Senators and Representatives were sworn in by outgoing Governor Lynch – he will be dearly missed, but we are excited to welcome Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan to the corner office.
It’s been great catching up with familiar faces and everyone is eager to roll up our sleeves and get to work. I pledge to help solve New Hampshire’s issues with a tone of civility, moderation, and bi-partisan discussion. With tight margins of a slightly Democratic House (219-179) majority, a slightly Republican Senate (13-11) and a moderate Governor, we’ll be forced to talk about the real issues – and compromise – to get the best budget and policies for our families and communities.
I look forward to a productive session, and as always I welcome your comments, questions, and concerns on any and all issues. I will do my best to keep my constituents up to date of goings-on in Concord as I do my best to represent all, and the values that keep this state great.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season,
