NH Rep.Rouillard awarded Toll Fellowship 

HOUSE BANNER

Freshman Legislator from Goffstown Among 48 National Winners

 

 

Concord—Rep. Claire Rouillard of Goffstown, serving her first term in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, has been awarded the prestigious Henry Toll Fellowship given annually by the Council of State Governments (CSG).  The program, named for CSG founder Henry Wolcott Toll, is one of the nation’s premier leadership development programs for state government officials.  Each year Toll Fellows bring 48 of the nation’s top officials from all three branches of state government to Lexington, Ky for an intensive six-day, five-night “intellectual boot camp” designed to stimulate personal assessment and growth.

 

Speaker Shawn Jasper, who nominated Rep. Rouillard for the fellowship, saw early on in the legislative session that the freshman was a quick study.  “Claire grasped the legislative process early in the session and has made a significant contribution to the House.  It is rare to have a freshman part of the leadership team, but Rep. Rouillard certainly earned her title as Assistant Majority Whip,” said Speaker Jasper.  “She has a very bright future in state government should she choose to stay on that path,” he added.

 

Rep. Rouillard represents Hillsborough County, District 6, and has been serving on the House Judiciary Committee while assisting the Majority Whip Richard Hinch of Merrimack.  Rep. Rouillard is a graduate of the Franklin Pierce Law School in Concord, known today as the University of New Hampshire Law School. 

 

Since 1986, 20 New Hampshire government officials have received the Toll Fellowship, including Deputy Secretary of State Dave Scanlan, current Democratic Leader Stephen Shurtleff, State House Chief of Staff Terry Pfaff, and State Senator Sharon Carson.

 

Rep. Rouillard will join the 47 other fellows in Lexington, KY from August 28 through September 2, 2015.

NH Rep Shurtleff receives Caroline Gross Fellowship 

HOUSE BANNER

Veteran Legislator and City Councilor Honored at the State House

 

Concord—Representative Stephen Shurtleff of Penacook, a 6-term member of the New Hampsire House of Representatives and a member of the Concord City Council since 2007, was recognized today in State House ceremonies by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for demonstrating a high standard of performance during his years in public service. 

 

The Caroline L. Gross Fellowship was established in the memory of the former Concord legislator who worked in numerous positions in the House of  Representatives, the Governor’s office, and as a State Representative from Concord.  In 1989 she was appointed House Majority Leader, a position she held until her death in 1993.  Upon her death, her family, friends, and colleagues established this fellowship fund to nurture the next generation of public servants.  Speaker Shawn Jasper, who served as the Assistant Majority Leader under Rep. Gross, called her, “one of the most remarkable ladies I have ever met,” also calling her an important mentor in his development as a legislator. 

 

The Caroline L. Gross Fellowship honors individuals for their extraordinary work in public service. This annual award pays tribute to a woman whose own dedication to public service lives on through the work of the fellowship recipients.  The fellowship enables the recipient to attend a 3-week summer seminar at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Rep. Shurtleff, who is the current House Democratic Leader, never served alongside Caroline Gross, but he told his colleagues in accepting the fellowship that he shared her legacy.  “I believe that we all have the ability to look for the thread that binds us instead of shining a light on the issues that may divide us,” said Shurtleff.

 

Rep. Shurtleff has been a member of the House since 2005 (6 terms). He has served on Criminal Justice (2 terms), Judiciary (2 terms), Legislative Administration (3 terms) and Pension Reform (1 term), as well as numerous House leadership roles.  He has also served as Concord At-Large City Councilor since 2004.  He is a former United States Marshal supervisory deputy for the U.S. Department of Justice.
