Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement about Senator Harold Janeway's decision to retire at the end of his current term.
"Senator Janeway was a tireless advocate of equality for all citizens and staunch defender of New Hampshire's precious natural resources. During my time in Democratic politics I can remember few individuals who have been as passionate about those core Democratic issues, as Senator Janeway. And fewer still who achieved as much as he did.
"Senator Janeway also played a pivotal role in the commission addressing problems with New Hampshire's retirement system. His wealth of experience on finance and investment issues was indispensable as Democrats worked to reform the health care benefit system for retired state employees.
"I want to thank Senator Janeway for his service to the state of New Hampshire and to the voters of the 7th District.
