Donna M. Soucy (born September 7, 1967) is a Democratic member of the New Hampshire Senate, first elected in 2012. She is currently the President of the New Hampshire Senate. Soucy serves on the Executive Departments & Administration, Election Law and Internal Affairs, Commerce, and Rules and Enrolled Bills committees.[1] Soucy has also previously served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives and as a Manchester Alderman[2]

Soucy became the minority leader in August 2018, after the incumbent Jeff Woodburn stepped down from his leadership post because he had been arrested on domestic violence charges. Soucy was re-elected to her Senate seat in November, but Woodburn was not. The Democrats won the majority of Senate seats state-wide. The 14 Democratic Senators-Elect chose Soucy as their leader at a caucus shortly after the 2018 mid-term election, she was later elected Senate President on December 5, 2018
