I believe in my abilities to help keep Gilford a great place to live

To The Daily Sun,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dale Channing "Chan" Eddy and I am running for selectman.

Some of you may know me through my time on the Gilford Planning Board. Some may know me through my time on the Facilities Planning Committee or from the Board of Directors of Lakes Region Public Access TV. Yet others may know me only through the letters I've sent to the local papers. A few of you I have come to know personally in my 10 years living in our town.

Let me state up front that I believe in my abilities to help keep Gilford a great place to live. Some of that will be through careful review and planning in regards to town spending by being able to discriminate between "need to have" and "nice to have".

I have been working in the high tech industry for almost 40 years, with over 20 years in defense and the balance with a local company that designs and manufactures equipment for the telecommunications industry. It is this experience I believe will bring a new point of view to the Board of Selectmen and enable it to tackle some of the technological issues that will face our town in the near future. While I cannot claim to have all the answers to the problems and challenges that our town may face, the important thing is knowing where to get the answers should the need arise.

Thank you for the support I have already received from some of our fellow Gilford residents. I will appreciate your vote on March 10.

Dale Channing Eddy

Candidate for Gilford Selectman

Do you wonder why Sanbornton taxes have increased so much?

To The Daily Sun,

Are you paying attention to how your Sanbornton town government is spending your tax dollars? Do you wonder why your taxes have increased 85 percent over the past 10 years? Have you considered that your taxes might even double in the next 10 years?

Only 30 percent of registered voters go to the polls in Sanbornton. In order for our form of government to work efficiently everyone should vote and attend Town Meeting. You would be amazed at the potential results.

Please vote on March 10 and help get the uncontrolled spending in Sanbornton under control. These men will work hard to promote good solid stewardship of your tax dollars: Earl Leighton and Craig Weisman on the Budget Committee, and Mitch Lewis on the Board of Selectmen.

John Robinson
