Register to vote for special election
To the editor:
There is a special election being held on Tuesday, June 25, at the Gilbert H Hood Middle School gymnasium. You must be a Derry registered voter to vote at this election. Poll hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
You can register to vote or request changes to your voter record every day that the Town Clerk’s office is open. Also, by law, we have sessions of the Supervisors and you can come in then to our office, Room 104 of the Town Hall, and register or request changes.
Currently, we will be having a session on Saturday, June 15, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Of course, if there is a large turnout, we will stay later. With the numerous hours that the Town Clerk is open, we find that most people register with them and then we enter the records and changes.
I’ve said this before and I will again: We have a right to vote in America. This is a privilege that many others don’t have. Please register and vote.

Dumpster Depot plans raise concerns
To the editor:
Dumpster Depot has submitted a plan to construct a facility on Ashleigh Drive near our homes and our neighborhood. People most affected by this (abutters and other neighborhood residents) are adamantly opposed to any type of construction of this nature being built on this land. The property was originally zoned residential when many of the homeowners purchased their homes; it is now zoned industrial. We do not welcome Dumpster Depot being so close to our homes and surrounding businesses. We feel this is the wrong business for Derry and the definitely the wrong location.
Many residents of Derry whose properties abut this construction site or even those not directly near this feel it would be a detriment to our community. There is no redeeming quality in having a Dumpster Depot so close to our homes. It does nothing to enhance the image of Derry that we want to give.
