MoBo's got a chance at real, "HOPE AND CHANGE" and not just lip-service.

My checkbook is open, if donations are allowed to a campaign fund.

Not the the Tech Fund :)

Josh, kudos for stepping up to plate, my only hope is that you don't choose to recuse yourself from votes when you have no conflict of interest as you have done in the past on the planning board. We need people who take a stand even when the choice is difficult.

I beliene Mr Bartlett does take a stand. Suggest that you go back and review that whole planning board fiasco and you will find that he entire board wsa put between the proverbial rock and hard place. The chair at he time, Tom Howard refused to show any support for his board members and was the only vote against sending a letter to the select board opposing the removak hearings. Sad day in our town best left in the past. No winners there.

Mr Bartlett would bring a good skill set to our town. Just the point that he knows about building committes is a breath of fresh air. Adding him to the BOS should go a long way towards assuring us that anything done will be done right. Mr Bartlett has my complete support.
