In NH, governor's success came from middle ground

(Continued)

That steady hand was just what New Hampshire needed as the nation tipped over into the worst recession since the Great Depression. New Hampshire weathered the storm better than most, and Lynch’s even-keel leadership was no small part of it.

Lynch said he’s optimistic about the future of New Hampshire, saying its core philosophies of low spending and low taxation make the state appealing to businesses and individuals.

“It’s a great state. It’s a special state,” he said. “It’s incumbent on us to keep New Hampshire the special state it is.”

“I really appreciate the trust the people of New Hampshire have placed in me,” Lynch added in closing. “It’s been a real honor to be governor. I loved being governor. The people of New Hampshire have been so supportive as I get out and about, I just thank them for the opportunity.”

Lynch can leave office with the satisfaction of knowing he has done his job well. We wish him the best.
