MANCHESTER — Stuart Trachy of Franklin has announced his retirement as a lobbyist for the New Hampshire Grocers Association.

“Stuart has a long career of government service as Franklin’s youngest mayor, elected to the legislature for several terms, became a county commissioner, and earned the respect of grocers by representing their interest for the past 35 years,” said NHGA President and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dumais in recognizing Trachy for his contributions.

“At the same time, we are pleased to announce that, starting in 2020, our members will have the team at RYP Granite Strategies advocating for our interests at the State House,” Dumais continued.

RYP Granite Strategies, located in Concord, is the professional government-relations affiliate of the law firm of Rath, Young and Pignatelli, PC. Experienced and connected, the team helps clients navigate the legislative process and the workings of state government.

The Granite Strategies team comprises accomplished professionals with diverse backgrounds, talents, and relationships. They are known, respected, and trusted under the State House Dome and at all the state’s executive agencies.

Dumais said their bipartisan relationships and fundamental understanding of client needs will serve the membership well in the often-complicated and always-demanding world of legislative and government services.

“We are incredibly excited to be working with the New Hampshire Grocers Association and look forward to demonstrating our abilities to best advocate for the interests of your membership,” said Dave Collins, president of RYP Granite Strategies. “Our team’s background and experience will be a great asset to your organization.”
