Michael Hatch just wants to represent all of us in Meredith

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing in support of Michael Hatch for Meredith selectman.

I, like many of us in Meredith, have known Mike for many years. He often says that "I'm for the little guy" and his volunteer efforts back that up. I've seen his work helping veterans at the Meredith American Legion Post and he has always found a way to help those who have served.

I also like that Mike isn't afraid to speak his mind. We get a lot of presidential candidates, and Mike isn't shy to ask a tough question and then follow up the next time we see the same candidate to see if they actually did anything about it. That same type of follow-through would be very valuable to us in our town government.

Lastly, Mike isn't using this as some sort of stepping stone to higher office. Mike just wants to represent all of us in Meredith and through his service improve the town that we are all so fortunate to live in.

If like me, you are looking for someone who is "for the little guy" than Mike Hatch is your candidate for Meredith Selectman on March 10.

Keep Gilford School Board strong by electing Chris McDonough

To The Daily Sun,

The election on March 10, like all others, will be very important for us as Gilford residents to get out and make our voice heard. Voting should be considered our duty and not assume that our vote will not make a difference. We all count and we should all be heard.

This election will include two open spots for the Gilford School Board. We have an excellent school system with a very competent School Board. With these openings it will be critical to fill the seats with high-quality people. I will be supporting Chris McDonough.

It is with confidence and pride that I support Chris. I have known Chris for over 20 years and can comment with knowledge of his integrity, honesty and character. He has a level-headed approach and voice. His experience as a large-business owner catering to the overall needs and desires of thousands of patrons, many with very diverse needs, speaks volumes of his ability to work with people. Chris's time and experience serving our local baseball, soccer and ski organizations demonstrates his willingness to get involved and help shape and direct organizations purely for the benefit of our local youth. I would imagine that most people don't know he is even involved in these organizations. He participates, without any other agendas, to help the kids.

The School Board helps direct and shape our education system for all of our children. Our society in general has become and continues to be a challenging environment. Our schools are critically important for the development of our children, both today and for their future. How much more important could it be to get the best people for this task. I truly believe that Chris will strengthen our already strong School Board.

Any organization is only as strong as the people by which it is comprised. Let's keep our Gilford School Board strong by electing Chris McDonough to the Gilford School Board.

You know my choice, please make yours and vote on March 10. Your voice does matter.

Tom Cantin
