Letter: Good choice in Belknap County
Ed Philpot has been a Belknap County Commissioner for the past four years, and I think other commissioners during that time would agree that he has provided vision and leadership while collaborating on a bipartisan basis with his colleagues.
Philpot puts the well-being of the county up front and has helped develop a strategic plan for the county looking at the long-term needs of Belknap County and balancing them with the financial constraints and challenges of today.
Continuity of leadership is critical. During Philpot’s tenure, relationships with local towns have improved, thanks to the regular County Conversations that have been held each year. Understanding the role and contribution made by each level of government in Belknap County has been clarified so that there are good working partnerships between them all. We need to continue to foster good working relationships, effective and transparent conversations that are in our mutual best interests.
Please support Philpot and vote for him on Nov. 6.
