Our Town Manager is in the last year of his three year contract.I hope he is looking for a new Spencer because he does not fit in our rural community.Chicago type politics do not work well here.You can fool some of the some of the time but not Moultonborough citizens, EVER. We always were on to you thanks to one of your Citizens from Spencer that tryed to warn our Selectmen.but they did not listen.You have outstayed your welcome.We have had enough!!!!!
