Still accepting memberships for Pine Gardens tenants' association

To The Daily Sun,

We are excited that the residents of Pine Gardens Mobile Home Park in Belmont once again filled the room at the Belknap County Complex on Saturday Jan. 30. This was the very first meeting since being registered with the N.H. Secretary of State as a tenant's organization.

Our sincere gratitude to guests Robert Cook of the Manufactured Home Owner Tenants Association (MOTA-NH) and Chris Clasby from N.H. Community Loan Fund, for sharing their knowledge and expertise with us. They were both very informative.

We are still accepting membership applications. If you are a resident living in the Pine Gardens Mobile Home Park in Belmont, and are interested in being part of our association, please contact us and we will provide you with a membership application form . . . and remember, you may not be evicted for joining a tenant's organization.

I will work to lower taxes in Bristol; vote for me for selectman

To The Daily Sun,

Hi, I'm John Sellers and I am running for Bristol Board of Selectmen. As another chapter in my life begins, I find it is time to give back to the community. I believe I can make a difference in our small town and work respectfully with everyone.

We all have special interests and mine are our kids and the taxpayers. Our kids are our future and our taxpayers foot the bill for our small town.

I will work to lower our taxes by implementing policies, processes, procedures, consolidating services, regionalizing where we can and making group purchases. This in turn will save Bristol taxpayers money and allow Bristol employees to work more efficiently and productively. By knowing the facts, listening to others and asking questions will help in making intelligent decisions.

Working as a business analyst and a past entrepreneur gives me the extra experience to do a good job for Bristol. I also find planning is vital in making decisions and spending other people's money.

I believe in Bristol and the Newfound Area. With your help I can win and be a strong positive influence for our town. I ask for your vote on March 8th and remember to come to the town meeting on March 12.

John Sellers
