Sanbornton voters need to vote with intelligence on March 10

To The Daily Sun,

Sanbornton voters, you really need to pay attention to what is happening to your town. Town taxes keep going up. At the same time the current incumbent (selectman), running for re-election, shows no sign of having a will to spend wisely. We had a great opportunity when Jeffrey Jenkins ran for selectman.

Town people were scared away by the fact that he spent a small part of the year in Florida. They should have realized that he could have spent just that short portion of the year in Sanbornton and accomplished more for your town than the incumbent.

It is time smart decisions came into play. Are you going to vote for who you know, or are you going to vote for what they know?

Vote with intelligence. For Selectman – Mitch Lewis; for Budget Committee – Earl Leighton and Craig Weisman

Article 2 in Alton is attempt to take away our property rights

To The Daily Sun,

Ah, March. The season of change, longer warmer days and the time to exercise our right in the voting both where change can and will be made. In my opinion, this March, Alton voters have three important issues that have a profound effect on our constitutional rights.

First, we have a Board of Selectmen who are like-minded and cater to the elite and if you try to voice your opinion at a meeting that the board, members do not like they will have you arrested. It's time to break up the monopoly of this board.

I know candidate Phil Whittmann would not have sat there and let a citizen be arrested like his incumbent opponent did.

Second, the School Board members who are up for re-election need to be replaced by people who care more about the children's education than using our tax dollars to pick winners and losers in the private sector.

Third, and most important, we need to protect our personal property rights. Once we lose them its hard to get them back. The Planning Board's Article 2, Amendment 1 is an attempt to do just that. They even admit it. In their rationale statement it's called the missing link. If Article 2 passes it has the potential to cost you thousands of dollars more just to put a shed or small barn on your existing property. Please help defeat this government overreach of power and vote "No" on Article 2. Thank you.

Raymond Howard, Jr.
