Please write me in for Moultonborough Planning Board

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Norman Larson and I'm asking Moultonborough residents to vote for me as a write-in candidate for the Planning Board next Tuesday.

As a citizen, I feel compelled to offer to help when my community has a need and I see that there is an empty slot on the upcoming ballot. As an architect, I believe in the importance of planning to the health of our town. I currently serve on the Moultonborough Heritage Commission and as that commission's representative to the town's Master Plan Steering Committee.

I have attended many Planning Board meetings and feel able to step up to become a voting member of the board. Although I hadn't originally planned to run for the Planning Board at this time, I'd be honored to have your vote. Please also ask your friends to write my name in: Norman Larson.

Norman E. Larson

Support Alton teachers with your vote

To The Daily Sun,

The Alton Teachers' Association is a part of the community that values public schools and learning, despite the many obstacles to successful education. Two of these obstacles are perpetually constrained time and differing viewpoints.

Alton's Budget Committee and School Board both hold the same viewpoint, however, with regard to the new collective bargaining agreement for Alton Central School teachers: unanimous support.

Casually referred to as the teacher contract, this agreement asserts positive and predictable working conditions while being fair to both Alton faculty and citizenry. If passed, it fixes the instructional school year at 180 days for students and eliminates 20 minutes of nonproductive time in the current school day. There has been some misunderstanding about this — the students still arrive and depart at the same times, classes will simply begin 15 minutes earlier and end 5 minutes later.

The Alton Teachers' Association encourages all voters to participate on March 8. We ask for the community's support so together we may surmount the many obstacles to successful education.

Richard Brown President

Alton Teachers' Association
