Last week I waited to testify for almost three hours before the Governor’s Council on the nomination of our Attorney General Gordon MacDonald to become Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. I was happy to wait. Gordon is a Republican (I am a life-long Democrat) who had a distinguished legal career in private practice before he became the chief law enforcement officer of our state in 2017. He was nominated by Gov. Chris Sununu to that important post and was confirmed by a unanimous vote of the Governor’s Council. He deserved that. He has done an outstanding job in his time there.
