Concord, N.H - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the passing of Executive Councilor Ray Burton.
"I met Ray Burton during his first term on the council 36 years ago. I had the honor of getting to know him and working with him on many important issues. Throughout his long career serving District One his steadfast commitment, untiring dedication, and infectious enthusiasm for his job was on proud display each and every day. Every person in his district was treated with the utmost respect by Councilor Burton no matter their differences. His decades of service will remain a model for both young and old in New Hampshire looking to make a difference through public service. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, loved ones, and constituents in Council District One."
