To The Daily Sun,
Please vote for Dick Burchell, who is running for County Commissioner in Belknap District 2. Over the last biennium, he has never missed a day at the Statehouse. He has perfect attendance both on the Labor Committee and during session days. He has also attended all County meetings. His voice has been steady in support of sensible policies, which take into account the fair treatment of both state and county needs.
It is not easy to keep one's composure during the sometimes contentious debates at both the state and county. Dick is for improving the County Jail, but not in favor of spending over twice the national average for new construction that has been proposed by his opponent and the other commissioners who currently hold office. He feels that a fair solution to the skyrocketing costs of health-care insurance premiums for county employees, now approaching $30,000 per family must be found. He believes in candid and honest governance where the needs of the many are addressed in an impartial way, in a manner which supports the dignity which should be the hallmark of the process.
I hope the Voters of Barnstead, Gilmanton, Belmont, and Tilton will join me in putting into office a person of integrity who will see that the county resources are used prudently. I am happy to endorse Dick Burchell for County Commissioner.
State Rep. Guy Comtois
Belknap District 7
