Published DateTILTON — After some hesitation Katherine Dawson decided to seek re-election to what would be her fifth consecutive three-year term on the Board of Selectmen.
"I hesitated," Dawson said yesterday, "for totally selfish reasons. I wanted more time just to be a farmer." She said that her four colleagues on the board are all intelligent, diligent selectmen, who do their homework. "They don't need me," she remarked.
However, when no other candidates stepped forward and her fellow selectmen urged her to return, Dawson filed for re-election. She serves on the Budget Committee and Parks Commission, acts as part-time health officer and when necessary represents the Selectboard before the Legislature in Concord.
She will run unopposed.
