Perkins Bass Visitor

Former NH House Speaker Norelli Named Perkin Bass Visitor

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences has announced that former Speaker of the New Hampshire House Terie Norelli, who now leads the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation, will be the third Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor for the 2015-2016 academic year.

“I'm really looking forward to coming to Dartmouth as Perkins Bass Visitor and engaging with the next generation coming up,” Norelli says. “I think that younger people are less interested in all the conflict we see in politics today and more interested in working together to find solutions. And quite frankly, I think women often have a more collaborative approach that will be reinforced by a younger generation that already has that mindset.”

Norelli was the first Democratic woman to lead the New Hampshire House. During her tenure in leadership, from 2007 to 2014, she worked to pass marriage equality and three state budgets, and was a leader of the bipartisan negotiations that led to the passage of Medicaid expansion in the state.

John Broderick Named Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences has announced John T. Broderick, a former Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court and the first Warren B. Rudman chairman at UNH Law, as the Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor for 2014-2015. 

A former Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court and the first Warren B. Rudman chairman at UNH Law, John T. Broderick has dedicated almost his entire life to public service. He served on the New Hampshire Supreme Court for 15 years and was also appointed by President Bill Clinton to the Board of the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), on which he served for 10 years. Broderick is the recipient of several honorary degrees, is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the New Hampshire Business & Industry Association. He was President of the New Hampshire Bar Association from 1990 to 1991 and also served as a litigation attorney.

Q&A with Former NH Governor John Lynch

Governor Lynch was elected in 2005 as the 80th Governor of New Hampshire; he served in this role for four consecutive terms until 2012. Under Gov. Lynch, New Hampshire was named the “Most Livable State” in the nation, as well as the “Safest State” for three years in a row.

John Lynch Named Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences nominated former NH Governor John H. Lynch, as the first Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor.

Named after longtime New Hampshire U.S. Congressman Perkins Bass and member of the Dartmouth College Class of 1934, this appointment is meant to celebrate a New Hampshire citizen who has made outstanding contributions in government, and provides Visitors the opportunity to share their knowledge with the Dartmouth community.

With eight years of experience as governor of New Hampshire behind him, John Lynch spoke at Dartmouth this week about the importance of bipartisanship at the state and national level.

“I think we have to be optimistic that we can solve the problems if we can work together,” Lynch told his audience at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center.
