Over the years I’ve given the Board of Selectman lots of grief, I think it’s time for some of my own medicine. So if you haven’t heard, yesterday I added my name to the ballot as a candidate for Selectman.
Everyone who seeks elected office has an agenda and I’m no different, but you shouldn’t be surprised to hear mine is taxes. If the current rate of tax increases continues we will see a drastic change in our demographic. Chichester risks becoming a “school only” community where families move here to school their children and leave after, leaving only those who can afford the higher and higher taxes. Gone will be the middle class farmers, mechanics, small business owners and families who have lived here for generations. Chichester will loose it’s identity and history and that’s not what I want for my family or yours.
We are not without other problems but they pale in comparison, if we can control taxes those problems will work themselves out.
Should I be elected I look forward to continuing to serve Chichester in this new capacity, but I cannot do this alone. I’m asking for your vote but also your continued support and guidance going forward. As your representative and voice in local government I need feedback and the Board of Selectman cannot efficiently govern without it.
As always more info is available at chichestertaxpayers.com, pass that information on to anyone who might be interested.
I’m available anytime if you have questions, you won’t always like my answer but I will listen to your concerns and always speak honestly.
Even if you won’t be voting for me please come vote anyways, voter apathy is why we find ourselves in the position we’re in, your vote does make a difference!!
