Please make positive choices for Alton: Johnson & LaCourse

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The Alton town ballot has three candidates for two selectmen seats. Two of the candidates, Cydney Johnson and Lou LaCourse, have proven records of positive contributions to the town; not so for candidate Phil Wittmann.

Cydney Johnson has served in Alton on the Budget Committee, the School Board and the Board of Selectmen. She has experience in a broad range of local issues, and I can vouch for her integrity. Lou LaCourse has served on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, a thankless job, but one that builds solid understanding of planning and zoning. Both Johnson and LaCourse have served with the best interests of the town in mind.

Phil Wittmann clearly has his own private agenda. He is a sponsor of those three nutty petition articles: One to fire Town Planner Ken McWilliams, one to fire Town Assessor Tom Sargent and one to withdraw from the Lakes Region Planning Commission. Who knows what else is on that agenda? Now he is seeking a position of authority in Alton to pursue his negative agenda.

Please make the positive choices for Alton selectman by voting for Cydney Johnson and Lou LaCourse.
