I remain a fiscal conservative with an eye on taxpayer impact

To The Daily Sun,

I am requesting the support of my fellow Tilton citizens in my attempt to be elected as a member of the Selectboard of our outstanding community. I would concurrently would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that voted during the last election cycle. Last year's election process was impressive in that it showed that community members know who they want to lead their community and who are willing to reach above the marketing ploys used in such processes.

I have not changed my views in the last year and staunchly remain a fiscal conservative who reviews all operating monetary requests at the municipal and school district level, utilizing the question of what is the impact on the taxpayer.

Our town is growing and facing problems that go hand in hand with growth, whether it be of an aging infrastructure, increasing health and retirement costs for municipal employees, less state and federal money and requests for additional services.

We, as a community, need to expand our search for revenue streams while keeping in check or reducing expenditures.

I strongly believe that I can fulfill this mission with your help and support in the upcoming election.

Wayne Brock
