Derry

Joel Olbricht is best choice

To the editor:

As a former Derry town administrator and town councilor, I understand the demands on our town councilors and the tremendous amount of time they invest in governing our town. It is no small task. We are very fortunate to have someone like Joel Olbricht who is willing to spend his time helping to make Derry a better place to live and work.

When I hear the Town Council candidates talk about the challenges of the town budget and town finances, I am convinced that Joel is the right man for the job, and that we should keep him as our councilor-at-large. As a certified public accountant with 29 years of experience, he brings vital financial expertise, budgeting experience, and cash flow analysis knowledge to the table.

Over the years, Joel has made a major commitment to his community. Locally he served four years on the Derry School Board; he is a past commissioner of the Derry Housing and Redevelopment Authority, on the New Hampshire Board of Education, as an East Derry Fire Commissioner, on the New Hampshire School Building Authority, was a member of the Southern New Hampshire Regional Planning Council, was a past president and incorporator of the Alexander-Eastman Foundation, and has given hundreds of volunteer hours to other civic organizations.

Joel has served Derry in countless ways and has a tremendous depth of experience and knowledge working with these diverse organizations. He has collaborated with hundreds of other volunteers to get the work done in a timely fashion.

What Joel brings to the Town Council is experience, common sense, patience, and an ability to work with everyone.

Please join me in voting for Joel Olbricht, councilor-at-large on Tuesday, March 12th.
