To The Daily Sun,
What a pleasure to have a candidate like Dave Pollak running for Commissioner of Belknap County. He actually listens to voters and is willing to work with other people in government to get things done for all the residents in the county.
With Dave it is not all about money and taxes. He sees good problem-solving as collaborative with input from all the stakeholders and then effective, economic evaluation of solutions. Dave's reason for running is to get Belknap County government moving in a positive, cooperative way and that resonates with me. I want an independent commissioner, not beholden to any party or ideology, able to research information on his own and think critically.
Dave has impressed me with his visitations to five county jails, talking with their superintendents, and county personnel at our local nursing home. As a candidate he has independently researched three different options for dealing with our overcrowded and inadequate jail facility. After drawing his own conclusions, he expressed them articulately in letters to the newspaper.
Reading the heartfelt letter from the spouses of nursing home residents published in the Sun, Oct. 16, it is glaringly apparent that we have to elect county commissioners and representatives who will work together to resolve contentious issues in a timely manner. Please join me in voting for Dave Pollak for Belknap County Commissioner Nov. 4 and get this county moving forward again.
