“Through nearly a decade and a half of public service, Mike Delaney has continuously protected and advanced the cause of justice for the people of New Hampshire. He has taken on difficult challenges with integrity, strength and resolve. I have greatly appreciated his counsel. While I understand his desire to pursue new opportunities, his steady leadership of our justice system will be missed, and I wish Mike the very best.”
