To The Daily Sun,
Bev Lapham will be an excellent addition to the Selectboard in Meredith. Bev moved to Meredith 27 years ago and has been committed to making this a community we can all be proud of.
Prior to moving to Meredith, he had a 23-year career in banking, starting at Citicorp of New York and serving as executive vice president at banks in Connecticut and upstate New York. After moving to Meredith, Bev owned and ran a local business, Village Canvas, for 25 years before his son took over the business. He has been a member of Meredith Rotary Club for 25 years and served as President from 2012 to 2013. He is also treasurer and trustee of the Union Church on Meredith Neck and a board member of the Greater Meredith Program.
Bev loves the town of Meredith and is always proud of what our town government, service organizations, non-profit organizations and superb volunteer force have accomplished. He has worked with many of the dedicated town employees, business owners and residents on many civic projects including: construction of the lakeside walkway connecting Scenic and Hesky Parks, the Community Center garden, creation of the pocket park, Courtyard on Main Street as Co-chairman, and, currently, the GMP Meredith Sculpture Walk Committee as chairman.
Personally, we have always found Bev Lapham to be willing to listen to all sides of any issue. While serving on the Sculpture Walk Committee, I have been able to observe his leadership skills and his willingness to consider all options. Bev has promised that he will bring his integrity, plus a respectful and cooperative attitude to the office of selectman.
We respectfully request that you vote for Bev Lapham as a member of the Meredith Selectboard in the coming election.
Fred & Linda Huntress
