New Mexico Gov. At CU Museum
The Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, delivered an address at America's Credit Union Museum here as part of a breakfast event co-sponsored by the New Hampshire league and the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources.
Richardson was on a two-day visit to the Granite State and has been mentioned by some as a potential Democratic Party presidential contender in 2008. Richardson came to the Museum in order to recognize the contributions made by the French Canadian community to the culture of New Hampshire. He gave part of his presentation in French (in which he minored at Tufts University).
"The people who came to Manchester from French-speaking Canada were determined, imaginative, and devoted to the idea of helping their family, friends, and neighbors," said New Hampshire league President Daniel F. Egan, Jr.
