Michael Brindley, NHPR

Governor Maggie Hassan focuses on unity in inauguration speech.

1:00: Hassan closing remarks: "Addressing our challenges will not be easy. It will be hard. But we are Granite Staters and Americans and we are supposed to do hard things.

Remember, the notion that we could operate as a true citizen democracy while also becoming an economic force in the world was, at the time, a revolutionary one...

In this time and in this place, let's choose to move our state forward with the optimism and pragmatism that is our hallmark. With "gladness of heart," let's choose to remember what a gift it is to be citizens of the Granite State."
