Omstead is a true conservative with proven experience

To The Daily Sun,

The residents of Sanbornton could not find a better person to represent the town as our selectman than John Olmstead. He is a true conservative in both his personal and professional life, with proven experience.

In his 20-year career as an officer in the Air Force, he managed several high tech military projects, such as the certification of the presidential Air Force One. He then entered the private sector working in various managerial positions along with managing his own business.

John has been active in the town, he was chairman of the ZBA and is still on the board. He is also chairman of the Budget Committee. He is an active member on several other boards in the town. John wants nothing but the best for the people of Sanbornton and he is willing to work for it. He will work hard to lower taxes and will be an outstanding selectmen.

He needs your vote in order to make this happen. If you are happy with having the second-highest tax rate in the county, the poor condition of our roads and the continual problems at the transfer station then you do not want to vote for John. If you want change, your vote should be for John Olmstead.

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.

Phil Preston
