Who would buy a house in a town that allows biosolid use?

To The Daily Sun,

On March 8, 2016, there will be a vote concerning the use of biosolids in the town of Gilmanton, and I implore you to vote in favor of their ban.

While I was living with my parents, the farm next door started using biosolids on their farmland. Once they began to use biosolids we became very concerned about what they would do to our health. Therefore, during my current house hunt my fiancée and I ruled out Gilmanton as a place we wanted to live due to the use of biosolids. When it came down to it I needed to consider the health and well-being of my fiancée, myself and the family we hope to start.

Perception can be far more powerful than facts. I could have easily written a letter full of facts and statistics about how biosolids are bad. But what's more important to me is the risk that my family could get sick from this substance, and why risk it? So when I went to go buy my house, I didn't even look in Gilmanton.

More importantly, if I came to this conclusion, who's to say others haven't as well. Who would want to buy a house in a town that is spreading human feces around in their fields?

We need to put a stop to the use of biosolids in Gilmanton. It's dangerous for the current residents, and possibly driving away potential ones.

Meet Bristol selectboard candidate John Sellers on Friday

To The Daily Sun,
John Sellers is a qualified candidate for the Bristol Selectboard. He is holding a Meet and Greet at Kathleen's Cottage, Lake St Bristol on Friday March 4, starting at 7 p.m.. I urge you to stop in and meet John and ask questions.
I am supporting John Sellers for Bristol Selectboard, because he will take the time to stop and listen, research, and carefully examine the issues. John is focused on the enrichment of our community through supporting local businesses and making economically sound decisions that will impact the town of Bristol.
As a member of the Bristol Budget Committee, John has recommended many cost-saving suggestions. One example of these suggestions is he has provided a comprehensive analysis of the ambulance service which would add revenue to Bristol by having the other towns pay the real cost of the service. John is not afraid to ask questions, take the time to gather information, and think outside the box when considering the needs of all the residents of Bristol.
Vote John Sellers on March 8 and come to Town Meeting on March 12.
Rebecca Boudreau
