Concord, NH – Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, issued the following statement today on Sen. Rausch’s decision to retire at the end of this term:
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Jim as close friend and a colleague for more than 30 years. His service to his constituents, community, and state throughout his career in business and public service provides a clear example of the kind of civic mindedness that makes New Hampshire great. It has been an honor to serve with Jim in the Senate, where he has always worked hard in support of the causes he believed were in the best interest of his constituents and his state.
“Susan and I extend our best wishes to Lorinda and Jim as they are set to become grandparents. And, on behalf of the Senate, I thank him for his service to the state and wish him a long and healthy retirement with his growing family.”
