Michael Delaney has announced Tuesday, he’s not seeking reappointment as NH Attorney General. Delaney said he has decided to make a change after serving four years as AG,
Governor Maggie Hassan released a statement. “Through nearly a decade and a half of public service, Mike Delaney has continuously protected and advanced the cause of justice for the people of New Hampshire. He has taken on difficult challenges with integrity, strength and resolve. I have greatly appreciated his counsel. While I understand his desire to pursue new opportunities, his steady leadership of our justice system will be missed, and I wish Mike the very best.”
Delaney has been critical in the past about Hassan’s budget revolving around casino gambling.
Delaney’s term expires on March 31. At the Governor’s request, he has agreed to stay on in holdover after that date if necessary to help ensure a seamless transition for the Department.
