Welcome center in North Country named for Burton


LITTLETON (AP) — A welcome center on Interstate 93 in New Hampshire's North Country is being named for the late Executive Councilor Raymond Burton.

Gov. Maggie Hassan signed the bill Friday. The welcome center is on I-93 south at exit 44 in Littleton.

Burton, who died in late 2013, served for more than 30 years as an executive councilor, making him the longest serving councilor in state history. A Republican, he represented the vast first district that spans the North Country.

The council is a unique, five-member body within the executive branch that oversees approval of government contracts and gubernatorial appointments. Burton's civic involvement also included years serving as a Grafton County Commissioner.

Last year, the welcome center on northbound Interstate 93 in Hooksett was named in honor of Burton.
