A number of good, new candidates running for office in Bristol

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Bristol Election Day is March 11. Voting this year will take place at the Marian Center at the foot of Newfound Lake. Many people don't know this because voting has traditionally been held at the Bristol Old Town Hall on Summer Street. In addition to the new venue, there are a number of new candidates running for town offices.

One for example is Andy O'Hara, a long-time Bristol resident and owner of APT Plumbing. Andy is running for Bristol selectperson for a three-year term. Another new candidate is Paul Manganiello, of Bristol's Basic Ingredients on Route 3A, who is likewise running for a three-year term. Both of these candidates are fiscally responsible and care about bringing viable businesses into the beautiful, newly renovated downtown Central Square.

Of course there are other candidates as well so check them out at "Meet the Candidates" on Saturday, March 8, at the Minot Sleeper Library on Pleasant Street from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Voters can make a better informed decision afterward.

So please attend this friendly, social, informational gathering. You will be glad you did.

The Bristol Budget Committee is also a hotly contested race. Dave Carr is running for re-election, and John Thouin is hoping to be newly elected to the Budget Committee. Hoping to hold onto his current seat on the Budget Committee is Kevin MacCaffrie.

Whatever your choice of candidates it is important that you vote on March 11 at the Marian Center on West Shore Road between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.
