Executive Council Confirms Department Head, Supreme Court Justice
New Hampshire's Executive Council has approved a new leader of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and a new state supreme court justice.
Sarah Stewart was confirmed as department commissioner on Wednesday. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said she has what it takes to drive the department forward into the future by supporting and growing the state's creative economy while protecting forest, lands, and waterways. Stewart works for a small business she started called B-Fresh Consulting.
Patrick Donovan was confirmed as a justice on the court. Sununu said his diverse experience will enable him to bring a well-rounded perspective.
Donovan owns his own firm and focuses on civil and criminal litigation. He previously served as legal counsel to the New Hampshire House of Representatives and as a senior assistant attorney general.
