Hampton Falls – Former New Hampshire Governor John H. Sununu issued the following statement today on the passing of Executive Councilor Ray Burton:
"I am truly sorry that New Hampshire has lost a great public servant and I am deeply saddened to have lost a good friend. Ray Burton spent nearly forty years working for the North Country, and his service stands as the model of what makes our state great. Ray was always there to serve his constituents and he never let them down.
"Ray’s passing is an enormous loss for New Hampshire, and he will never be replaced. Nancy and I extend our sympathies to his family and ask all Granite Staters to keep them in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."
