I understand Shaker community and would like to serve it

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Citizens of Shaker Regional School District,

Please accept this as a letter of interest for the open school board position at Shaker Regional School District. As a taxpayer in the town of Belmont, a parent of two children in the system, and an educator, I believe I can offer a well-rounded perspective to the school board.
I have 20 plus years of experience as an educator both as a teacher and administrator. I understand the workings of schools as well as the challenges they face. I have been a resident of Belmont for almost 10 years as our family relocated from Phoenix, Arizona. I have come to understand this community and would like to become more involved in serving it. I am interested in becoming a school board member to help our schools continue to grow and provide our students with the education they need to be successful in the 21st century. I would appreciate your support on Election Day.

Joel Mudgett seeking return to Moultonborough Selectboard

To The Daily Sun,
As a longtime local resident, Joel Mudgett is asking for your support for selectman.

Having grown up in Sandwich and attended college at Lakes Region Community College, he then entered the army for 6 ½ years when he was honorably discharged as a sergeant. He then moved back to Moultonborough to raise his two children.
Joel then worked in and around Moultonborough doing odd jobs, taking a position for the town Highway Department before becoming the property manager/head of maintenance for Camp Robindel for the last 34 years. He has also served as a State Deputy Fire Warden for 15 years and retired from the Moultonborough Volunteer Fire Department after 20 years of service. He has also served two years as an alternate on the Planning Board and three years as a full-time member. He has been a selectman for the town of Moultonborough from 2006-2015.

Joel believes that most people who know him will tell you that he will listen to all who want to express their concerns, trying to make decisions that are best for the town. He would once again like to help ensure that he town continues to grow and prosper without
forgetting about the roots of the community. He would great appreciate your support March 14 by voting for him to be selectman.
Joel Mudgett
