Sen. John Gallus, who has represented the North Country in the Senate for about a decade, is retiring.
“I’ve been in the legislature going on 13 years and it is time to call it quits and go fishing,” he told NHPR.
After serving in the House, Gallus, a Republican from Berlin, was elected to the Senate in November 2002 to represent District One.
The core of district is the North Country but it runs south to the Waterville Valley.
He said changes to the district were not a factor.
