Just yesterday when I was volunteering at the State House I happened to be going past the Executive Councillors’ Office and inquired how Ray Burton was doing. I was assured that he was in fine fettle.
This morning, as soon as we got to the Laconia Airport Open House I spotted Ray with his distinctive ride. I, of course, went up and asked him how he was. He was GREAT. That is good news. He looks good. Said that he was feeling good, had lots of energy. This was 10 am in the morning. At 1pm he was going to a Polly’s Pancakes in Sugar Hill to celebrate them being in business for 75 years. At 2pm he had another meeting in Littleton. Just hearing his schedule made me tired.
He, as ever, being who he is, told Deanna to take a picture of us together. Though I have shook hands with him many times I think this is the ONLY picture I have with Ray. I like Ray. He is a great politician and a good man. IF we just had a dozen more politicians like Ray in Concord things would be so much better for the State.
Way to go Ray. So happy that you are doing well.
Yes, I am wearing my Granite State Ambassador (GSA) shirt and badge though this was not a GSA event. But we are allowed, even encouraged to show the colors when we volunteer in NH.
