Dear Chichester Residents,

My name is Edward Millette and my name will be on the ballot March 14, 2017 for the position of Chichester Selectman.  


After a vacancy was created by Richard DeBold, I was appointed and given the privilege of serving Chichester as a member of the Board of Selectmen.  Although it has only been a few short months, I have found the position to be interesting and very rewarding.  With that being said, I would like to continue to serve on The Board and am asking for your vote.  I am a lifelong Chichester resident.  I attended Chichester Central School, Pembroke Academy, and Plymouth State College where I earned a BS in Business Management.  After finishing college I built a house on Horse Corner Road to raise my own family.  My wife and I own and operate a family owned business that is based in Rochester NH, that I am proud to say has been in business for over 52 years.  


Giving back and volunteering in our community continues to be an important part of my life.  I have been a member of the Advisory Budget Committee for that past 7 years, previously served on the Old Home Day Committee for 5 years, and have been a member of the Chichester Fire/Rescue Department for over 19 years. Working with these organizations has allowed me to meet and get to know many of the great people that live in Chichester.  As a member of the Board, I will continue to get to know as many residents as possible, listen to your ideas, attend events and meetings throughout our town, and work together to continue to make Chichester a great community to live in and be proud of.


Thank-you for your consideration, and your vote on March 14th.



Edward Millette
