Joseph Foster is now the Attorney General for the state of New Hampshire.
Foster, of Nashua, was sworn in May 15 in the governor’s chamber by Gov. Maggie Hassan in a short ceremony including family, friends, legal colleagues, and some of the employees of the Department of Justice that he will oversee.
Hassan said she admired the work he had done previously as a lawyer and state Senator.
“He is just a gifted and dedicated member of his community and his family and I’m just so privileged and honored that he’s willing to serve,” she said.
Foster, in front of his mom, wife, and daughters, thanked everyone for coming and said he would continue to do “the people’s work” with Hassan, law enforcement, and other department heads.
