To The Daily Sun,
My name John Olmstead and I am running for selectman of the Town of Sanbornton.
In the 10 years that I have lived in Sanbornton I have been on the Zoning Board of Adjustments for six years, the Budget Committee for four years, and the Board of Directors of the Sanbornton Historical Society for five years. I have also served on our town's Pay Matrix Study Committee.
My wife and I love living in Sanbornton. We love the rural look, the feel of the town and the interaction with the town's people.
During our 10 years I have seen Sanbornton town government both externally and internally and I know that we have a good governing body. But, in the natural course of events, some things need more attention and the town needs new ideas. If elected, I will act to address these needs. Taxes, the transfer station, and communications are a few of my concerns.
The recent transfer station upset ties in with my concern for communication. Every effort must be made to keep the people informed, so town government is responsive to and reflective of the people. We all want our town to run smoothly.
My opponent has been a selectman for nine years, but now it is time for him to take a well-deserved rest and let someone with fresh ideas and management skills come on the board.
I hope every one of you will come out on March 8 and vote for your town government. I ask that you vote for me for selectman. Also, please come to the Town Meeting on March 9 and vote for your town's budget. This is your chance as a citizen legislator to have a voice in the budget process that affects the taxes we pay. I hope to see you on both days.
