CONCORD, NH — During today’s organizational caucus, Senator Donna Soucy of Manchester was unanimously selected to serve as Democratic Leader. Senator Soucy was elected earlier this week to her sixth term in the State Senate and has served as leader of the Senate Democrats since 2018.
Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy released the following statement following the caucus:
“I am humbled to once again serve as leader of this caucus and continue the work we have done to put the priorities of hardworking Granite Staters first.
“We welcomed several impressive new members to our caucus this year, with a wide range of experience and expertise. I look forward to what we can achieve together on behalf of the people of New Hampshire. With such a closely-divided legislature, it is more important than ever that we come together to address the challenges facing our state. We must address the rising costs our families are struggling with and protect our fundamental freedoms, including reproductive rights and access to safe and legal abortion.
”I thank my Senate colleagues for putting their trust in me and I’m confident that Senate Democrats will continue to fight for Granite State values and deliver for the people of New Hampshire.”
NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the selection of Senator Soucy as Senate Democratic Leader:
“Congratulations to Senator Soucy on being selected as Senate Democratic Leader once again. We are fortunate to have a group of Senate Democrats who have passion to fight on behalf of their communities and a resolve to deliver for Granite Staters. I can think of no better person to lead this impressive group of public servants than Senator Soucy and I look forward to seeing what they can achieve together over the next two years.”
