I will work to lower taxes in Bristol; vote for me for selectman

To The Daily Sun,

Hi, I'm John Sellers and I am running for Bristol Board of Selectmen. As another chapter in my life begins, I find it is time to give back to the community. I believe I can make a difference in our small town and work respectfully with everyone.

We all have special interests and mine are our kids and the taxpayers. Our kids are our future and our taxpayers foot the bill for our small town.

I will work to lower our taxes by implementing policies, processes, procedures, consolidating services, regionalizing where we can and making group purchases. This in turn will save Bristol taxpayers money and allow Bristol employees to work more efficiently and productively. By knowing the facts, listening to others and asking questions will help in making intelligent decisions.

Working as a business analyst and a past entrepreneur gives me the extra experience to do a good job for Bristol. I also find planning is vital in making decisions and spending other people's money.

I believe in Bristol and the Newfound Area. With your help I can win and be a strong positive influence for our town. I ask for your vote on March 8th and remember to come to the town meeting on March 12.

John Sellers

I just can't thank T-Bones enough for going above & beyond

To The Daily Sun,

I would love to share an incident that happened to me at T-Bones.

Upon going down by van ramp in my electric wheelchair I caught the power cable in my van door and severed it, so halfway down the ramp there I sat. My friend tried to help, but do no avail.

She ran in to the restaurant and asked for help. Within seconds a gentleman came to my rescue and got me free and proceeded to manually get me in the parking lot. He pushed me into the restaurant and to a table.

I am a resident of Taylor Community and a call was put in to the them to see if I could get help to get back home.

The gentleman at T-Bones said I had to have the power cord spliced or a new one. While on the phone to Taylor the gentleman returned to the table with the proper tools to splice the frayed and cut wires. He continued to work on my chair and was able to reconnect the wires and then my power chair was working again. Taylor was notified of the fix and said they were already to come to repair my chair.

It is wonderful to know that people do care and to go above and beyond and get me going once again.

On top of all this the waitress said we owed nothing for our lunch.

Kudos for T-Bones. I just can't thank you enough for your going above and beyond the call of duty, Jason.
