Sununu takes leadership post with border commission

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has been chosen to serve as the state co-chair of a federal-state partnership that encourages job creation in northern New England and New York.

The Northern Border Regional Commission was created in 2008 but it only added the state co-chair position two years ago.

The first to hold the job was Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, whose term ended last month.

The commission has awarded more than $55 million in grants that have leveraged $142 million in additional funding.
