Statement on Senator Martha Fuller Clark's Retirement From the Legislature

Concord, N.H. - Today, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement in response to Senator Martha Fuller Clark’s announcement that she is retiring from the New Hampshire legislature. “For thirty years, Martha Fuller Clark has been a voice for the Seacoast community and a champion for progressive values in the New Hampshire State House. She has pioneered issues like affordable health care, quality education, civil rights, women’s rights, protecting our environment, and preserving our state’s history. There is no doubt that New Hampshire is a better state because of Martha’s commitment to Granite Staters.” “Martha’s natural ability to lead is why she is so widely respected by her colleagues on both sides of the aisle. I saw this when I served with her in the State House, which is why I asked her to serve as the Deputy House Democratic Leader, and it’s why her Senate colleagues named her as the Senate President Pro Tem – twice. Not only is she an effective leader, but she has always run positive and thoughtful campaigns, whether it was for the State House, State Senate, or U.S. Congress - her campaigns and her career have always been about putting New Hampshire first.” “We will miss Martha’s leadership in the State House, but I know she will continue to be engaged in politics and grassroots activism at the local, state, and national levels. I look forward to continuing to work with Martha as we build and grow the Democratic Party with the goal of creating a better New Hampshire and America for everyone.”
