Sellers, Morrison & Cote will look out for the taxpayers of Bristol

To The Daily Sun,

On Tuesday, March 8, the Town of Bristol will be holding elections for town officers, I urge each of you to cast your vote for the candidate of your choice.
As a taxpayer and citizen of Bristol, I will be voting for the candidates for selectman that I feel best represent the interests of the taxpayers and citizens of Bristol.
While I realize that we, the taxpayers, have an obligation to supply necessary services to our citizens, our departments have an obligation to supply those services in a responsible and cost effective manner. Some departments have a long history of achieving those goals; others not so much.
I hope you will join me in supporting those candidates who will work to provide those services in a responsible cost effective manner. Those candidates who will work with an eye out for the taxpayer are John Sellers, J.P. Morrison, and Bill Cote.

Alton will greatly benefit from having McDonald & Howard on board

To The Daily Sun,

This year we are fortunate in Alton to have two excellent candidates for selectman, Virgil McDonald and Ray Howard.

Virgil has been a selectman for the past year and has proven himself to be a balanced and caring member of the board. He was a responsible member of the Budget Committee in the past and his home and his heart are here in Alton where he has spent his life. He knows the citizens and cares about the town.

Ray Howard is currently our state representative and a member of the Belknap County Delegation, so he is already working for the citizens of Alton and Belknap County. He will keep the board and the citizens up to date on the goings on in Concord and Laconia and how they will affect the town and its tax base. As we do not have "home rule" in New Hampshire it will be very helpful for a selectman to share this information with the board and the citizens.

Please consider voting for Virgil McDonald and Ray Howard in the town elections on Tuesday, March 8. Our town will benefit greatly with Virgil and Ray on the Selectboard.
Phil & Chris Wittmann
