Vote Rosemary Landry in Meredith & Barbara Howard in Alton

To The Daily Sun,

We are writing in support of two fine candidates running for local office in the Lakes Region.

Rosemary Landry, who is running for Selectboard in Meredith, has been a tireless fighter for the citizens of Meredith and the state. She's attended countless meetings statewide and locally and filmed many of them in an effort to bring to light the problems facing her town and state. Rosemary was instrumental in getting out important information regarding proposed rotaries in Meredith and the problems they would have caused. Rosemary will always keep the best interests of her town and its citizens at the forefront. We encourage the citizens of Meredith to cast their votes for Rosemary Landry for Selectboard on March 10th.

In our hometown of Alton, we're supporting Barbara Howard for the three-year term on the School Board. Barbara is another fine example of someone who has spent countless hours fighting for what is right for our town. She's a compassionate person who devotes much of her time to the disabled and was an outstanding member of Alton's Budget Committee.

Recent developments brought on by three school board members in Alton show we need change on the board. We will be writing in Barbara Howard on March 10 to help bring about that change and we encourage others to do the same.

Sue Allen a voice of reason on School Board and she's approachable

To The Daily Sun,

On March 10, Gilford will be filling two, three-year positions on the School Board. I throw my support behind Sue Allen.

I have personally known Sue for many years, and have always been impressed with her dedication to the youth of Gilford in the many volunteer committees and boards she has served on. As in any business, experience is important. Returning Sue to the board not only brings to the community this experience and knowledge, but gives us a person who is a voice of reason, level-headed, and approachable.

Please vote for Sue Allen on March 10.

We must maintain high level of town services but better manage money

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Craig Davis and I am running for the Sanbornton Budget Committee.

In the past, I served as chairman of the Highway Study Committee. We recently submitted our final report to the Board of Selectmen. I served as a member of the Budget Committee, filling the remaining term after a resignation. I've made my home in Sanbornton since 2005. I served four years in the Air Force and am a Vietnam veteran.

Presently I volunteer in our town as follows:

— Chairman: Pay Matrix Study Committee.

— Member: Space Needs Study Committee.

— Vice Chairman: Zoning Board of Adjustment.

— Advisory Capacity: to Town Hall Steward.

The knowledge I have gained on these committees and from regularly attending the weekly Board of Selectmen's meetings position me to serve on the Budget Committee.

My Position: We must maintain our high level of town services while better managing our town tax dollars. I ask for your vote for Budget Committee member on March 10. I look forward to seeing you at the polls at the Old Town Hall from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Craig Davis

Paul Perkins has demonstrated he deserves to continue as road agent

To The Daily Sun,

Dear fellow Gilmanton voters:

On Tuesday, March 10 Gilmanton voters have the chance to re-elect our Road Agent, Paul Perkins. I encourage you to vote to re-elect Paul, who has been a hard-working road agent. As an elected road agent, Paul is accountable to the voters. I can say without hesitation that anytime I have had a question or concern, Paul personally takes the call and makes sure my questions are answered or any concern is promptly addressed.

There is a small group in town who think it is better to take away our vote for our road agent and transfer more power to the Board of Selectmen by letting them appoint. And in the process they want to end the public service which has been provided by Paul Perkins to our town. He knows our town, has dedicated himself to the very challenging work and has demonstrated he deserves another term as road agent. I really don't think this power-grab by the selectmen and small group in town is in our best interests in Gilmanton.

Please keep our road agent an elected position. Please also cast your vote for Paul Perkins. He has earned our support.

Ray Moritz will protect our common investment in Meredith

To The Daily Sun,

The town of Meredith is not the small village it used to be. With a municipal budget of over $14 million and a net property valuation of just under $1.75 billion in a community of a mere 6,200 residents, Meredith can be likened to a big business.

Every Meredith taxpayer owns "a share" in this business. How has your investment in Meredith been doing? What do people say of the community we call home? Is it a valued place to live and to work? If your answers make you feel good then my vote and yours is very important next Tuesday.

There are four seats to be filled on the Selectboard. Two will be decided by you and me. The remaining two will be filled by the very people we elect. This is perhaps the most important election Meredith has seen in decades. We need to elect those candidates who have had experience in the business world and are capable of making prudent business decisions. We need to elect those who have strong management skills and corporate experience.

Ray Moritz stands out among the rest. Ray has owned property in Meredith for more than 30 years and chose to retire here in 2006. He experience is in engineering, computer science and management. He was CEO of two companies including a large Information Technology Services subsidiary of Canon.

Ray has a strong sense of community service. In his retirement he is a senior consultant with Executive Service Corps, a non-profit volunteer group that assists other non-profits with strategic planning and board development. In that capacity and now as treasurer, Ray has contributed countless hours of invaluable expertise and direction to the Lakes Region Visiting Nurse Association (Meredith).

Ray is a common sense guy and a good listener. He has the skills and the commitment to represent you and me well and protect our investment in Meredith.

Vote Ray Moritz for Selectman.

Edward C. Touhey
