New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch last week appointed John Beardmore to be the next budget director.
Beardmore has served in the Office of the Legislative Assistant for the past eight years, most recently as one of its budget officers. The office conducts investigations, analyses, and research on the state’s financial activities as part of the General Court, the state’s legislature. Beardmore will replace budget director Kristyn Van Ostern effective Sept. 1.
