Gov. Hassan Nominates Four Judges To Circuit Court

Governor Maggie Hassan is expected to nominate four judges to the circuit court during an Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

Hassan says she will nominate Susan Carbon of Chichester, Robert James Foley of Dover, Margaret-Ann Moran of Manchester, and Patricia Quigley of Concord.

The Governor’s Judicial Selection Commission, a bipartisan panel, recommended all four candidates for the appointments.

Hassan says each nominee has decades of experience working in the state’s judicial system.

The governor says she will also nominate former Assistant Attorney General Martin Honigberg to a six-year term on the Public Utilities Commission at Wednesday’s meeting.

The Executive Council must approve all of the nominations.
