Please join me in voting on Tuesday, Nov. 3; poll are open from 8 to 6

To The Daily Sun,

It has been a privilege to serve my adopted city as its mayor for the past two years. I know that entrusting a newspaper editor with this honor was somewhat unorthodox but hope that my fellow citizens have not been disappointed with my performance to date and will support my re-election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

I continue to believe we share a bright future, that we are presented with an opportunity to vastly expand economic prosperity in our city. We still have a lot of work ahead of us but the procurement and eminent redevelopment of our Colonial Theater has certainly given us all a renewed sense of optimism. And that optimism is contagious.

I think your City Council has acted very responsibly in making wise infrastructure investments over recent years, while at the same time earning your trust that the authority to collect taxes will not be abused.

I plan to exercise my right to vote in our biannual city elections on Tuesday. I invite you to join me in doing so. All six polling stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Let's keep Laconia moving!

Edward J. Engler

Mayor of Laconia

Meredith & Community Thrift Store will close as of November 28

To The Daily Sun,

The Board of Directors of the Meredith & Community Thrift Store join in with our customers in thanking our dedicated manager of 10 years, Lisa Stevenson. This non-profit store will close as of Nov. 28, after serving our customers and giving over $59,000 to other area non-profits. Any outstanding funds will be likewise distributed after we close.

We all wish Lisa a well-deserved rest as she prepares to meet new goals. She is sure to shine wherever she goes. Many thanks to all of the many volunteers who have helped us, especially Betty Guyer.

Board of Directors
