To The Daily Sun,
As a resident of Tilton, I write this to express my full support for Peter Fogg in his race for one of two seats on the Tilton Board of Selectmen.
I have known Peter for the past 13 years as a colleague teaching in the Winnisquam Regional School District. During this time, I have watched Peter's pragmatism, his drive to hear and expose all sides/views of a given situation through discussion and explanation, and his dedication to solving problems via understanding and compromise whenever possible.
As a parks commissioner, Mr. Fogg has volunteered his time and worked many hours maintaining both the field and ice rink located at the Route 132 Ball Field. His service as sewer commissioner has greatly expanded Tilton's sewer system, protecting our two lakes and rivers for generations to come. And Peter has done all this while maintaining a low cost structure to ratepayers in our town.
Peter is interested in improving the quality of life in Tilton, and has volunteered countless hours to youth organizations, including The Winnisquam Regional High School Parent, Teacher, Student Organization, Cub Scout Pack 248, the Tilton-Northfield Little League, and Winnisquam Regional Cal Ripken Baseball.
I believe Mr. Fogg's experience with the functions of town government will be an asset to the citizens of Tilton as he works to control spending and to keep our tax rates level.
Please join me in supporting Peter on March 11.
