Stewart is committed to responsive, responsible government

To The Daily Sun,

Tuesday, March 8, will be a time in New Hampshire when politics will truly be local. Ashland voters will choose one selectman for a three-year term, and Jeanette Stewart is running to fill that vacancy as a write-in candidate.

A former member of the Board of Selectmen for many years, she has chosen to seek re-election to the board because of her commitment to responsible and responsive town government. Her roots in Ashland run deep, and because of her longtime involvement in town affairs, she has acquired a thorough understanding of the issues facing Ashland as well as the legal obligations of the board and its members.

I served with her for three years, and I appreciated that we could work together even when our opinions differed.

I hope that the voters in Ashland will support Jeanette Stewart by writing in her name for selectman on Tuesday, March 8.

Vote ‘yes’ on Article 4 for Gilmanton Year-Round Library

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of the Gilmanton Year-Round Library Association, I would like to urge voters to let your voices be heard on March 8. Your choices will determine the future of your town.

Please vote "yes" on Articles 4 and 21 as recommended by the Board of Selectmen and the Town Budget Committee.

Article 4 will provide the Year-Round Library with $47,500 per year for each of the next two years to put toward operating funds. Over one-third of the annual operating budget will continue to be raised through volunteer efforts.

Article 21 is a backup article to provide one year of funding should Article 4 not receive the required three-fifths majority.

We look forward to continuing to provide the Gilmanton community with diverse media, numerous programs, computer access, and professional service. Residents of all ages benefit from this community resource.

Vote "yes" on March 8.

Chris Schlegel

GYRLA Board of Directors
