To The Daily Sun,
On September 12 the city will hold a Primary for Wards 1, 2 and 4. I am writing to ask voters in Ward 4 to please get out and vote and show your support for Councilor Brenda Baer. While I am not a resident of Ward 4 (I live in Ward 5), I am urging voters to support Brenda, who will continue to be a city
councilor committed to keeping the tax cap.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Brenda in her capacity as Ward 4 city councilor. For 21 years I worked for the City of Laconia, with 18 of those years working as the administrative assistant to two city managers — Dan McKeever and Eileen Cabanel. During that time I worked with many mayors and city councilors. One of those city councilors was Brenda Baer. She was someone who did her homework and made it a point to be thoroughly informed about what she was going to be voting on. She was diligent and eager to do the work necessary to be informed when it came time to cast her vote, especially when it involved the city budget or spending taxpayer money.
This past summer I had the occasion to attend a function and sat with Brenda for several hours. During the course of our conversation we discussed some current city issues. Brenda is still the same informed, conscientious city councilor who has spent the last 12 years doing what was best for her constituents and the city. Brenda does not need to figure out what issues the city is facing. She has been dealing with them for the past 12 years. Brenda has strongly supported and voted to keep the city budget within the tax cap — protecting taxpayers. She has been there to support the revitalization of downtown through the Colonial Theatre project and Main Street bridge project and the recently completed beautification projects at Weirs Beach.
In Councilor Brenda Baer you have someone who is knowledgeable about the issues the city is facing and does not need on-the-job training to get started. She is informed and will vote to protect thetaxpayers of the City of Laconia as she has consistently done for the past 12 years. Please support
Councilor Brenda Baer on September 12!
