Register and be sure to vote
To the editor:
As you already know, you must be a Derry registered voter to vote in Derry elections.
There is plenty of time to register at the town clerk’s office: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Wednesday, the town clerk is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Should you not be able to make it to the town clerk’s office, we, the Supervisors of the Checklist, will be having a session on Saturday morning, March 1, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Derry Municipal Center, 14 Manning St., Derry, in Room 104.
The checklist is closed and you may not register between March 2 and March 10.
You may register at the polls on March 11, but you risk the chance of long lines and waiting. The choice is yours when you wish to register, but please register at some point and come out to vote. You are voting for people who represent your town and your vote.
Chairman, Supervisors of the Checklist
Londonderry facing challenges ahead
To the editor:
As a resident for just under 30 years, I am in every sense of the word a product of the town of Londonderry. I spent 12 years in our school system, graduating prepared for further education and the workforce. I was involved in the community through Scouting with local Troop 426. I received my Eagle after constructing the handicapped ramp attached to Town Common. My father was known as “Dan The Milkman” to many of residents while employed with HP Hood, and now works for the post office. My mother Patti just retired from the Police Department after 35 years. My commitment to my community is primarily a product of these two individuals.
Three years ago, I decided to get involved in local elective politics by running for a seat on the Budget Committee. This past year I was privileged to serve as the chairman.
