CONCORD — New Hampshire Union Leader President and Publisher Joseph W. McQuaid will be presented with the Josiah Bartlett Center’s Libertas Award, the center said Thursday in a release.
The award will be presented by former Gov. Steve Merrill and Fox News chief political correspondent Carl Cameron.
“We are privileged to be able to honor Joe McQuaid for all his work,” Charlie Arlinghaus, president of the Josiah Bartlett Center, said in a statement. “It will make the tribute special to have someone of Carl’s stature who knows not just the state and our organization so well but is and has been so familiar with Joe at every step of his career.”
McQuaid is being honored “for all his work opening government to the people, promoting the independence of information and supporting the economic freedom at the heart of our system,” the statement said.
The Libertas Dinner begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
