To The Daily Sun,
My name is David Nickerson, I am asking for your vote for re-election for selectman in Sanbornton on March 8. I have served on the Budget Committee for three years and on the Board of Selectmen for nine.
Most people do not realize that nearly each and every week new and fresh ideas are presented to the Board by the Selectmen, committees, employees, and others. These ideas are discussed, studied, voted on, and if viable, implemented with input from all involved.
Current projects include but are not limited to working on the Lower Bay Road reconstruction, engineering for the needs and space study of the town buildings, economic development, the transfer station, water system, and an up-to-date employee pay scale. The board relies on the department heads, committees, employees, and citizens to help deal with these sometimes complex issues. We have an open door policy at our meetings that allows for and welcomes participation from citizens and employees. Everyone's ideas are important, communication is essential.
The current Board of Selectmen has longevity which is a good thing for the town. We have fostered close relationships with the state of New Hampshire, Department of Transportation, Department of Environmental Services, and other agencies who help us with roads, drainage, and other issues. Your selectmen have a wide range of skills including management, budgeting, and expert knowledge of DPW operations. We have attended many seminars and classes on 91A laws, human resources, and RSAs concerning town government.
I am not out of ideas. I am a fiscal conservative, but realize that the town needs have to be met and we cannot go backward. A major concern for me is the ability of all the citizens to pay their taxes.
You are my "boss." I welcome all input and will work as hard as I can for you if re-elected. I love our town and hope to continue to serve you.
