If elected I'll continue to move Sanbornton forward in a positive manner

To The Daily Sun,

For those of you who don't know me, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Katy (Wells) North and I am running for a three-year term for the Sanbornton Board of Selectmen. I was appointed to the vacant selectmen seat in September 2016.

For the past five months I have worked diligently for the best interest of the taxpayers of Sanbornton. In my five month time as a selectmen, I have been a team player on the current board and we have made significant accomplishments, including stabilizing the tax rate. I have been a Sanbornton resident for over 21 years and for the last 20 years I have held various town positions both elected and appointed. I have applied these years of experience to my last five months serving as selectman and look forward to continuing this service.

If elected as selectman, I look forward to addressing the building space needs of the town, assisting in the process of evaluating our town roads and looking at long-term plans for keeping our infrastructure maintained. I ask for your support to be elected as selectman on March 14. I will continue to move Sanbornton forward in a positive and productive manner for the betterment of the town and benefit all citizens. I appreciate your consideration.

Katy (Wells) North

I was saddened by votes against County Nursing Home Activity Dept.

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing to you as a Belknap County Nursing Home resident, I was deeply saddened by your vote against the Nursing Home Activity Department. The Activity Department is so vital to us here at the home. I wish you would come in to see what we have, what we do, and what we can do. It gives us a reason to live every day.

Please some and see us, I beg of you. I wish you could see we are human beings and not just numbers. Hope to see you soon. You can ask for me.
