Along with the wild ride of the GOP Presidential nominating process, we have our own drama here in Moultonboro. Recently retired Selectman Joel Mudgett announced his candidacy to return to the BoS as a write in candidate. His platform was based upon a number of matters he is concerned about. The purchase of a military surplus truck which he believes did not follow proper process, the Road agent who has taken a full time position as Town Administrator in New Durham and continues as our elected Road Agent, his concern about the county budget and lack of services Moultonboro receives and would like to have a voice on building committees and on other town projects.
Former Selectman Jon Tolman is running as a write in candidate for School Board. Mr. Tolman was not present, but his sister Becky Bryant made the announcement. One of the incumbents on the ballot, Celeste Burns, has resigned from the School Board for her current term and it is unclear if she will continue on the board if elected.
Norm Larson was announced as a write in candidate for a seat on the Planning Board. There are now town candidates running for two Planning Board seats.
Ballot day is Tuesday 7am until 7pm at the Life Safety Building. Come on in and vote. You can also still vote by absentee ballot if you can't be here Tuesday by stopping in to see the Town Clerk tomorrow until 5pm.
