My name is Bob Henderson, and I am a candidate for the Gilford Budget Committee. I have been around Gilford for many years, beginning as a summer resident in the early 70s, and evolving into full-time residency over 10 years ago, when I retired. I have always been impressed with the way the town handles all its departments, and how conservative budgeting keeps taxes down. I am impressed with the schools, and look forward to seeing three of my grandchildren progress through them. I feel we have the best Police, Fire-Rescue, and Public Works departments in the area.
I am also a realist; the economy is through. I am on a fixed income, and to not look to spend any more than necessary. I worked as a firefighter most of my adult life and I am familiar with municipal budges processes. (I also worked as a call firefighter for Gilford almost 20 years.) I really enjoy living in Gilford, and feel I have the time to contribute something. I would appreciate one of your three votes at the election on Tuesday.
