To The Daily Sun,
On March 11 the voters of Alton have a chance to elect a conservative selectman with a new perspective on town government. I have worked for a large health care company for 25 years and have also run a small entertainment business. In health care I have specialized in working with senior citizens and have learned from their wisdom.
I have been concerned about outside groups trying to dictate to our town how they must plan the town's development. I have personally spent hours researching the over-reaching state Workforce Housing Law and would fight against it. Workforce housing is being implemented through changes in zoning. Our membership in the Lakes Region Planning Commission connects us with an organization of unelected officials with a very liberal agenda who have little concern about preserving the traditional New Hampshire way of life.
I believe in keeping the cost of local government low especially during a recession. The public sector can only do well when the private sector is doing well.
Finally, I would like to see more civility at town meetings toward citizens and board members. The voters of this town deserve to be respected. I also consider our senior citizens and our veterans to be our town's greatest assets.
I would be honored to serve as selectman for Alton and would appreciate your vote on March 11.
