Former Congressman Charlie Bass: Ray Burton Set the "Standard for Public Service"

Peterborough, NH – Former New Hampshire Congressman Charlie Bass (NH-02) released the following statement today on the passing of New Hampshire’s District 1 Executive Councilor Ray Burton:

“Ray was very special to me, not only because I admired his commitment to public service, and I used that standard of service as a goal to attain in my own career, but also because he was a wonderful friend, someone who made campaigning fun and who always saw goodness in everyone, friend and foe alike.

The citizens of New Hampshire and particularly in Council District 1 will not forget this man's caring compassion for his constituents, the impact that he had on the lives of so many he helped, and his cheerful, optimistic and engaging view of the world.”
