Phil Whittmann only Alton candidate working for local control

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

This coming March 11, the taxpayers of Alton will be asked to choose from three candidates for two seats on the Board of Selectmen.

Phil Wittmann is the only candidate who will work to preserve local control and protect Alton residents' private property rights and control over the education of its children.

Phil wants more transparency as relates to elected officials' actions, and is a fiscal conservative who will expose and fight against any wasteful spending of the taxpayers' dollars.

He is available to answer questions regarding warrant articles on which you will be asked to cast your vote. Some have been slyly crafted and could result in your voting against your intentions. Town officials are taking a second shot at pushing through certain items relating to your property rights which you soundly defeated in the past. I attended two meetings on workforce housing in Alton and there wasn't any support from the people. The only support was from "stakeholders," including your town planner, who is trying to tell you that his proposal has the people's support. Be very careful.

If you value local control and your private property rights, your vote for Phil Wittmann is imperative. Remember, your vote has serious consequences.
