Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Executive Councilor Deborah Pignatelli's (D-Nashua) retirement:
"While we didn't agree with Councilor Pignatelli on every issue, we thank her for her years of service to the State of New Hampshire. We wish her the best of luck in the future and a speedy recovery from the short-term health issue that she is facing.
"Republicans now have an excellent chance to pick up the District 5 seat and take back the majority on the Executive Council. We are confident that our party will nominate a fiscally responsible candidate who will win in November."
