The walls and the hallways are largely empty today in one of New Hampshire’s oldest and grandest hotels.

Less than two weeks after Sen. John Gallus, a Republican from Berlin, said he wouldn’t seek another term representing the North Country two Democrats say they would like to take his place.

Woodburn, 47, is a free-lance reporter and owns White Mountain News.com. Before that he had a real estate business focusing on historical buildings and was a teacher. The Whitefield native lives with his family in Dalton.
