CONCORD – Current House Republican Leader, and Republican nominee for Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, Rep. Dick Hinch, R-Merrimack, released the following statement following his unanimous election by the Republican Caucus today to lead the House in the 2021-2022 session year.
“I would like to thank my Republican colleagues for putting their trust in me, and electing me as their nominee to lead the House for the next session year. I care deeply about our legislative body and the State of New Hampshire, and it would be an honor to serve our state and the people in this capacity,” Hinch said.
“I have spent the last 6 years working with members of our caucus from all walks of life, and building consensus to achieve our goals. Those who know me know that I have worked tirelessly over the last two years to bring our caucus together and that everyone has a seat at the table.”
“Holding the office of Speaker is not ceremonial. It is a complex management role that requires experience and background knowledge in order to hit the ground running. Should I be elected Speaker by the House on December 2nd, I look forward to getting to work immediately, and working with all of our House members to keep New Hampshire the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
