State Senator Scott McGilvray has died.
The Hooksett Democrat died Wednesday morning, though a cause is not yet clear.
He announced last month he stepping away from his job as president of NEA-New Hampshire, the state's largest teachers union, citing health reasons.
McGilvray worked as an educator in Manchester for 25 years before he was elected to the state Senate in November. He leaves behind a wife and two daughters.
In a statement, Governor Chris Sununu called McGilvray a dedicated public servant.
