I would like to congratulate Jean Beadle and Josh Bartlett for their recent election to the Moultonborough Board of Selectman. I look forward to working with them as we lead Moultonborough into the future. I would also like to personally thank Kelly Marsh, Chuck Connell and John Anderson for caring enough about their community to throw their hats into the ring. I appreciate their dedication and their willingness to serve the people of Moultonborough. Respectfully, Chris Shipp.

With only 698 votes cast I am sure they got the count right last night. With credit to Goodman Ace and apologies to Shakespeare "Politics makes 'estranged' bedfellows". I don't think Josh will be vindictive but that doesn't mean he needs to put a lot of trust in the TA. Article 29 discussion will be interesting.
Thanks to all who ran. With such a low turnout, it is sad that an election with five contestants for two spots couldn't foster more people to turn out on a fine spring day to vote. Come on folks... its your town.

Thanks to all the folks who encouraged me to run.

Thanks to all who supported and helped me.

Thanks to all the candidates.

But most important, thanks to all the citizens who participated in this demonstration of "government by the people".

Now, the real work begins. I look forward to serving all our citizens with fairness and openness.

Sincerely, your humbled servant,
Josh Bartlett

Congrats to the elected.
Kudos to those who ran.

It was a good day for a Republic, and those that exercised their right to vote.

Ballot results:


Another reason for 3-10-15 being a good day! Another reason to enjoy MoBo!



Half of "town meeting day" is done. Next half is 3-14-15.
