To The Daily Sun,
It has been my privilege to serve on the Sanbornton Budget Committee the past three years. I am seeking re-election to the Budget Committee and I am asking for your vote on Tuesday, March 14.
Three years ago my position was that the Budget Committee and Board of Selectmen should cooperate with the goal of reconciling budget differences prior to Town Meeting. Since I was elected, the Budget Committee and the Board of Selectmen have improved communications and meet both at the outset of the budgeting process and after the Budget Committee review. This has resulted in substantive differences being brought to the voters.
Budget disagreements cause Town Meeting to be excessively long and drawing attention away from the largest drivers of town property taxes, warrant articles. As promised, I have made every effort to see that the product of the budgeting process provides clear and meaningful choices to the voters at town meeting.
I would appreciate our vote and support on Tuesday, March 14. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Town Hall.
