After 50 years in service to others at the State House, the last 25 as a State Senator, Democratic State Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, 85, of Manchester announced he is retiring at the end of his term.

As he retires Sen. D’Allesandro takes his place among the giants of NH politics, names like Raymond Burton, Walter Peterson, Stuart Lamprey, Warren Rudman, Caroline Gross, Susan McLane, Hugh Gallen, Donna Sytek all of whom he praises and calls his friends, irrespective of political Party.

Over the course of his life, Lou D’Allesandro has sported many titles, Captain of his UNH athletic teams, Coach of basketball teams of all ages, teacher, College President, State Representative, and now retiring “Dean” of the NH Senate, an honor bestowed upon him by his colleagues as the longest-serving Senator.

The extensive article written by’s Paula Tracy and linked below provides a much more detailed look at all this but of course our goal was to add some color to the biography of Sen. D’Allesandro through his recollections and reflections.
