CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Environmental Services commissioner says he plans to step down in a few months after serving more than a decade.

Tom Burack says he’s decided that 10 years is the “right length of time” for him to be commissioner. He said Tuesday he’s considering a number of possibilities for what comes next in his career.

Under state statute, Assistant Commissioner Clark Freise will serve as acting commissioner upon Burack’s departure and until a permanent commissioner is nominated by the next governor and confirmed by the Executive Council.

Gov. Maggie Hassan said under Burack’s leadership, the department has focused on combating the serious challenge of climate change and ensuring that New Hampshire citizens and visitors have access to clean air, water and land.
