Talcott was remembered as “a staunch advocate for the core values of the Republican Party” by William O’Brien, state director of the New Hampshire chapter of the Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA), according to NBC Boston. He was a GOP activist and lawyer,

“His unwavering belief in liberty, free markets, and limited government resonated deeply in his role as a lawyer. Within the RNLA, his leadership was unwavering in promoting our shared values, ensuring every member felt empowered and well-prepared,” O’Brien said of Talcott.

Calling Talcott “an exceptionally skilled champion for the rule of law and the importance of fair and honest elections,” O’Brien added that Talcott’s legacy would “inspire future generations within the RNLA and the greater legal community.”
