Letter: Write in Whalen for Belknap County commissioner

Wednesday, September 05, 2018

My name is Bill Whalen, and I am asking for your vote as the Democratic write-in candidate for Belknap County commissioner.

As a resident of Belknap county for more than 32 years (living in Sanbornton), I know that it is really important for Democrats to have a voice in county government. I believe that my extensive experience in business management and budgeting makes me a worthy candidate to represent them.

During my employment in the corporate sector, I managed divisions of 200-plus employees with budgets of $40 million to $50 million. I was also responsible for the planning and development of a corporate data center, which was built on time and within budget. I also functioned as a management consultant to identify excess expenditures, facilitate streamlining and successfully effect significant savings for my clients.

After I moved to New Hampshire, I served as chairman of our town planning board for two years and then went on to serve on the town zoning board for three to four years. I have always been interested in the betterment of my town and county, and I want to help to make Belknap County even better than it already is.

Please consider writing in the name Bill Whalen on the Democratic ticket on primary day, Tuesday, Sept. 11, and help me give Democrats a chance to have a strong voice in Belknap County government.
