So sad about the passing of my friend & mentor Governor Steve Merrill. NH has lost one of our best, a great leader & extraordinary person. I will miss Steve’s brilliance, his way with words and wonderful sense of humor. My thoughts & prayers are with Heather, Ian & Stephen.

Our thoughts are with the family of Governor Stephen Merrill. Gov. Merrill created NH’s Domestic Violence Prevention Program in 1994 – a fund that has helped thousands of victims and their children seek safety from domestic abuse. #nhpolitics

So sad to hear about the death of former NH Gov Stephen Merrill. He was Governor when I started working at @necn in 1995 covering my first NH #fitn primary. A very decent man. #nhpoli
