To The Daily Sun,
Last spring, certain Carroll County representatives voted to slash the Carroll County Farm's budget — thereby forcing employee terminations, reduction in the application of fertilizers and discontinuation of cord wood procurement for the firewood business, among other restraints. Many of these short-sighted representatives are now advocating for a plan
to convert the farm into a 'learning center,' duplicating the work of the UNH Cooperative Extension. Don't be fooled by this facade; these people are trying to terminate our historical farm.
Although this attack on the farm is only one issue in a campaign of many concerns, many of us in the agricultural community believe that these representatives showed such poor judgement in de-funding the farm that they should not be re-elected.
Defend the county farm by voting to unseat incumbent Glenn Cordelli and vote instead for farm supporters in District 4: Karel Crawford, Gary Chehames, and Paul Puntureiri (vote for two of the three).
