Letter To The Editor

 

On March 14th, Epsom voters will have the choice of two excellent candidates for Selectman. Chris Bowes and Virginia Drew have both served the town as elected officials and both are committed to serving our community.

 

I am supporting Chris Bowes in his re-election quest because having served with him on the Board of Selectmen for the past two years, I have seen a man who has worked tirelessly to make sure the town provides the services its residents need, while at the same time keeping the town portion of the tax rate from rising.

 

Working with his fellow Selectmen, Chris has been instrumental in cost saving efforts such as changing assessing firms, resulting in a significant reduction in cost. Chris also worked closely with our financial administrator to start the shift away from top tier health insurance plans that stopped the astronomical growth in cost while at the same time still providing good coverage for our employees.

 

The cost of our schools is out of control due to unfunded mandates from the state and federal governments. This makes it critical that the Selectmen tightly control the costs of town government to help lessen the tax impact of the school.

 

Re-electing Chris Bowes will ensure that the progress the town has seen will continue. Please join me in supporting Chris Bowes on Election Day.

Letter

 

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

This week my committee wrapped up the “early” bills, which will go on to another committee. HB97, on the use of drones, was amended to remove most restrictions on personal and professional use, and recommended to pass, 18-0. It still contains the prohibition on weapons and limits on government use of drones. HB307, banning reserved parking for low-emissions vehicles at liquor stores, was killed, 17-0, as unnecessary because the offending signs have been taken down and the liquor commission, I believe, was warned that this is not the group we would want to get reserved parking – veterans and first responders were suggested as more appropriate. We also voted to kill HB645, ending retiree health benefits for future state employees, and HB446, prohibiting mandatory project labor agreements in state contracts. This would be a nice gesture, but since the state has never required such an agreement, and it would disadvantage the 80% or so of state construction workers who are not affiliated with a union, there’s not much chance of one being imposed in the future. HB624, technical corrections to various retirement system laws, was amended to consistently cover dependents up to the age of 26, and recommended to pass, 18-0. HB649, making emergency medical technicians who are not also firefighters eligible for a death in the line of duty benefit, was amended to make the language more consistent and passed,17-1.

 

The committee also voted to retain HB192, on rules in the Department of Corrections; HB631, creating a cash balance plan for new hires; and HB653, health care premiums for over-65 state retirees. This last bill was the only contentious one, due to the opposition we’ve all received from state employees and retirees – the vote was 10-9.

 

Interested readers can email me to receive my newsletter, which has more detail than fits here.
