Statement of New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley on Governor Lynch's Announcement

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Governor John Lynch's announcement that he will not seek a fifth term.

"Governor Lynch is a selfless and tireless advocate for Granite State working families and small businesses.  For seven years, his strong leadership has brought people together to make progress for New Hampshire.  As a result, New Hampshire passed statewide public kindergarten, sharply cut our high school dropout rate, kept our unemployment rate one of the lowest in the nation, became the first state to pass marriage equality for all citizens without a court battle or veto, and implemented an aggressive sustainable energy policy.


"Governor Lynch's common sense and steady leadership have helped New Hampshire during some of the toughest times in the last hundred years and we know that he will continue to stand up our New Hampshire advantage and state he loves."
