To The Daily Sun,
It is that time of year again: voting at the polls and town meetings.
I would like to let people know that I am running for one of the two seats on the Moultonborough Board of Selectmen, and I would appreciate your consideration.
I have served on town boards and committees for many years, recently as chairman of the Planning Board, where we endeavored to apply the rules of our land use ordinances fairly and openly. The Planning Board is also responsible for the Master Plan for the town, and we worked on guidelines for the future of our town.
I have also served the citizens of Moultonborough on the Village Vision Committee, which is an effort to develop a consensus opinion of the citizens of our town on the future of our village.
Additionally, I have served on the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) Committee for several years. The committee researches and develops recommendations on costly projects and purchases so that the Board of Selectmen is able to make informed decisions on which projects to recommend to the voters at Town Meeting.
I have served on other town committees and boards, including the Library Trustees, and the Central School expansion committee some years ago.
In all these efforts, I have been guided by several principles:
— Government should be as open and transparent as it can legally be.
— The rules should be the same for everyone.
— And the money and resources with which we are entrusted are the property of all citizens and should be used as wisely as if they were our own.
I have formerly served the Moultonborough United Methodist Church as chairman of the Board of Trustees, served on several building committees, and also as a co-leader of Youth Group.
Professionally, I have worked primarily in the construction supply business in sales, management, and as a trainer of architects, engineers, code officials, builders, firefighters, and lumber dealers. I have also owned several small businesses.
I promise you, the Moultonborough citizens, that if I am honored to be on your Board of Selectmen, I will listen to you, and stay faithful to my principles.
Most importantly, though, I urge you to vote, either absentee or at the polls on March 10 and to attend Town Meeting on March 14. It is critical that you make sure that your voice is heard.
