Say ‘no’ to increasing spending

To the editor:

In case you haven’t noticed, or just don’t care, things are out of control in this country, state and town as far as prices, and especially taxes, are concerned. I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and have reached the breaking point. Some things are beyond my or your control, such as gas prices, heating costs, food and medical costs, and all of these things are hurting all of us, no matter what age we are.

There are no jobs out there to make extra money to keep up, let alone catch up or get ahead. As taxpayers in Derry, we have a chance of controlling part of our problem on March 12, when we can and must vote no to increased spending. If a majority of us show up and vote “no” on spending, we have a small chance of getting control and putting some money back into our pockets in order to pay for our essentials.

I don’t want to lose my home because most of my mortgage payment is going to cover property taxes. Our elected officials must learn to say “no” and we, as overtaxed citizens, must learn to say “no more!” Please help me, and others like me, keep our homes and not lose them to the town because we can no longer afford them.

Please go and vote “no” on March 12 to increased spending. I am learning to do more with less and the highest tax town in New Hampshire must also do the same.

Let me continue as your town clerk

To the editor:

As your present town clerk, I am asking for your vote on March 12 to continue the progress I have made over the past seven years reorganizing, upgrading and updating the operations of this office.
