To The Daily Sun,
I would like to thank Sanbornton voters for your support as a write-in candidate for the office of selectman. I was reminded by a Sanbornton voter on Election Day, "We know how to treat each other decently; it's just a matter of doing it." This reminded me of the philosophy of former New Hampshire House Speaker Harold Burns: "Agree to disagree in an agreeable manner."
As always, our Town Meeting is an unfinished journey, with its bumps and potholes, but when it works, giving room for citizens to reinvent and reinvigorate it, it thrives as no other system can.
Finally, it is our collective hope going forward that young people in our town will step forward and assume their rightful role as stewards of Sanbornton.
