To The Daily Sun,
I'm writing to express my support for Glen Waring for Belknap County commissioner.
As the county treasurer, I had the opportunity to work directly with Glen when he was the county's finance director. I found him to be very knowledgeable, professional, and effective in the position and easy to collaborate with. Glen kept an open mind with regard to my suggestions and I was able to rely on him to get me accurate answers when I had questions. He was a valuable resource to me and was sorry to see him leave the county's employment.
Glen's experience managing the Finance Department for the county has taught him what the county commissioner position can do to help the organization provide services better, to continue to reduce public tax expenditures, and to keep the public informed. He has the knowledge, education, and experience to lead the county.
It would be refreshing to return to a time when politics does not interfere with the provision of necessary and often emergency public services. Glen knows how to get the job done without promoting a personal political agenda through the office of the commissioners. He knows how to work through all the "red tape" and where it can be reduced. He understands the benefits of collaborating with town and city officials to reduce the overall tax burden on the public.
In summary, Glen understands the operation of our county government, he understands the financial impacts, he understands local taxation systems, and he's motivated to bring about positive change. If you live in Belknap County District 2 (Barnstead, Belmont, Gilmanton and Tilton), I hope you will vote Glen Waring for Belknap County commissioner on Sept. 13.
Michael G. Muzzey
Belknap County Treasurer
