Letter: Congratulations to Gilmanton selectman
I want to publicly congratulate Don Guarino on his re-election to the Gilmanton Board of Selectmen. I wish him and the rest of the board well in the term ahead. I also want to recognize the many residents who cast a ballot for me. Thank you so much for your vote. While I am disappointed, of course, to have not been elected, it has not diminished my core reason for running: I love Gilmanton.
My service to the town as an active resident will continue, and I look forward to attending meetings, advocating for positions, issues and people in which I believe at public sessions, and doing all I can to support the selectmen.
These are important times for our community. The challenge of maintaining the quality of our town, its services and its assets under SB 2 and an economic recovery which is yet to fully materialize here will test our leaders’ management skills. With so many critical matters to work through, I encourage each and every one of us to be involved. The board’s work can only be enhanced with our engaged citizenship.
