Vote 'no' on Article 1 to put a stop of workforce housing law

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

On Article 2 on the Alton Town Warrant: Planning Board Proposed Amendment No. 1. This amendment may confuse some voters on March 11. A "yes" vote will still support the Work Force Housing State Law instead of trying to do something to eliminate it. Towns across the state should not have this law hanging over their heads. Town leaders need to join forces with other towns to work with their elected representatives and senators to get rid of this bad law.

As for HUD money, this article exists because HUD makes money available to push their agenda against individual and private property rights in the state of New Hampshire. Once money is accepted the article must appear on the ballot. However, voters still have the option to vote it down.

A "yes" vote preserves this bad law. A "no" vote can help start the process to get rid of a bad law. Please vote "no" on Article 2: Planning Board Proposed Amendment No. 1 on March 11.
