Being a part of Sanbornton BudCom is my way to be involved

To The Daily Sun,

I am Craig Weisman and am running for the Sanbornton Budget Committee. My wife Cindy, my two children and I have lived in Sanbornton for more than 12 years and in New Hampshire our entire lives. I have coached soccer and basketball for the Recreation Department for many years, watching my children go through the program. We love this town and everything that small country towns stand for.

I own my own business and want to use my 30-plus years of business experience to serve my community. I am a numbers person, am very comfortable reading financial statements and know how to run a budget.

I am conservative by nature, but as a small-business owner, also recognize the importance of taking care of your employees. I also understand that when you need to take on an additional expense or purchase, you must really analyze first. Is it really needed? If the answer is yes, then negotiate the best price and get the best you can afford.

In summary, I feel all citizens have a responsibility to get involved in their town in some way. I feel being part of the Budget Committee is an excellent way for me to do my part.

I urge Commissioner Burchell to stay at table & represent me

To The Daily Sun,

Last November conservative and Tea Party voters went to the polls with the objective of tossing out the Democrats who believed in Obama's agenda.

It seems that Republicans cannot stand victory. John Boehner begins by alienating Congress members whom I agree with. And it did not take long for the Speaker of the House to bow down to Obama. Harry Reid still thinks he is Majority Leader of the Senate, even though he is not. Since McConnell does not like confrontation, he is allowing Reid and Obama to set the agenda. Obama is angry at Netanyahu for reminding us of what a real leader does. And I snicker at the thought of B. Hussein being put in his place.

There is another opportunity for something good for the residents of Belknap County. The voters said they wanted a County Commission that would protect us from a new county jail addition, members who would listen to the public, and be transparent (not BHO's idea of transparency). I did do what I could to help candidates (Dick) Burchell and (Dave) DeVoy win, and the appointment of Hunter was a good move.

Now for some reason, my hope was that the three commissioners would be the answer, they are giving the detractors an opening to attack their every decision.

Commissioner Burchell, as a supporter, I ask you to remain at the table, not as the chairman, but as the man who wanted to represent me.
