Thanks to all following the cookie theft at Christmas Village

To The Daily Sun,

Thanks to Patty Derosier and her daughter for years of being so thoughtful as to provide cookies for Christmas Village. It was heartless for somebody to steal dozens of cookies from such a kind-hearted lady; she’s like having another Santa.
Christmas Village is such an overwhelming family activity, people enjoy it, then their kids and then their grandkids ... on and on, through the generations.
Thanks to Facebook, word of the theft and the need for cookies spread like wildfire to Laconia High School, Laconia Fire, Gilford, Titlon, Northfield, Stewart’s Ambulance, bakeries, visitors, nursing homes, etc.
Thanks go to the fire departments and police and the vets, not just for a day, but for life. Christmas Village and its workers are special.
Thanks so much. It’s a real joy to see kids so happy to be there.
John Gaydos

Belknap County Delegation’s first allegiance is to taxpayers

To The Daily Sun,
In response to Ms. Doyle’s letter of Dec. 24, I feel compelled to illustrate the responsibilities of the Belknap County Delegation.
All members have a fiduciary responsibility to county taxpayers protecting their money from willful and profligate spending. If this requires careful examination and vetting of monetary disbursement, this falls under the heading of the delegation doing its job. Just as we balance our budget at home, the delegation must ensure that the county lives within its means. This current delegation’s first, last, and only allegiance is and shall remain with the taxpayers of Belknap County.
To inaccurately suggest that members have done otherwise is, I believe, a disservice to all of us who pay our fair share of taxes to benefit our community here in New Hampshire’s finest county.
State Rep. Peter J. Spanos
Belknap County, District 3
Finance Committee
