Meetings in Concord in middle of day are not in taxpayers best interests

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The recent Belknap County Convention meetings have generated large (often standing-room-only) audiences. Given the unusually high level of public interest, you might think that the chair would do everything she could to create an open and inclusive process. Unfortunately, you'd be wrong. She has just scheduled meetings for the 19th and 26th of March, which are to be held at noon in Concord.

Rep. Worsman is the duly elected chair of the Convention and she has every right to promote a Tea Party agenda, but she also has an obligation to be transparent and to involve the public to the maximum extent practical. By scheduling meetings in the middle of the day in Concord, she is not acting in the best interests of the voters of Belknap County.

Please contact her and ask her to hold all Convention meetings in our county.
