Lynch plans to stay out of public eye
CONCORD — John Lynch — a people person’s governor by his own description — plans a quiet retirement out of the public eye, but not away from the state he loves.
The 60-year-old Democrat leaves office Jan. 3 when another Democrat, Gov.-elect Maggie Hassan, is sworn in to succeed him. Mr. Lynch said he will not speak out on issues, lobby or do anything that interferes with Mrs. Hassan’s opportunity to govern in her own style.
Mr. Lynch said he does not know what he will do next, though Dartmouth College has asked him to teach. He said he may develop a course building on three classes he taught at the college over the past few months on the differences and similarities between heading a business and governing the state.
Mr. Lynch, a former businessman, said he also may serve on corporate or nonprofit boards.
