Dear residents of Gilmanton:
I am a candidate for the Board of Selectmen. I have served the town as your selectman for six years, two years as the Chairman.
I grew up in Gilford and moved to Gilmanton in 1978. My wife, Sandi, of 36 years moved to Gilmanton in the 60's. I care deeply for this town and know many people are hurting in this economy.
The budget for the town of Gilmanton is a fair and responsible budget. I thank the Board of Selectmen and the Budget Committee for the effort. Discussions at the county level concerning a new prison and the way the Mutual Aid dispatch are funded will have tremendous impact on our taxes.
I will, as your selectman, work to communicate your concerns with the County Commissioners on this tax burden.
I know people are hurting and taxes are a major concern. Please let me represent your best interest.
