CONCORD, N.H. —The five-member Executive Council unanimously confirmed Gordon MacDonald as the state’s new attorney general on Wednesday morning, succeeding Joseph Foster.
Despite the 3-2 partisan split on the council, MacDonald was praised by the two Democrats as well as the three Republicans on the council prior to the vote.
MacDonald is an attorney at the Nixon Peabody firm in Manchester and has a lengthy resume on legal matters and a history of community service. He has also achieved numerous recognitions from legal organizations.
