CONCORD – Earlier today, House Democratic Leader Renny Cushing passed away following his battle with stage four prostate cancer.
Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy issued the following statement in memoriam:
“Leader Renny Cushing truly represented the best of us. He was a tireless advocate who spent every day of his life working to give a voice to the voiceless, raising up issues of social justice, and protecting the rights of every single Granite Stater. Renny’s legislative accomplishments were many, but I will most remember his decades-long and persistent work to repeal New Hampshire’s death penalty. I was honored to play a part in that journey with him. I will never have the right words to summarize Renny’s life of service, his kindness, his humor, the way he would break into song when greeting you, the respect he commanded from colleagues on both sides of the aisle, his love of his family, and his unwavering belief in the place he called home. He truly was one of a kind. Today, New Hampshire lost a fearless warrior, but his legacy will live on through the lives he has changed, the stories he’s shared, and the very real ways he left New Hampshire better than he found it.”
