Mark McConkey (r) Freedom, was one of three bidders on a small county project , a pole barn, eventually awarded to Gene Menard of Loudon, NH. for $3,128.01. McConkey is the owner of McConkey Construction in Freedom and is also Vice Chair of the County Delegation. The county delegation, is responsible for the budget appropriations for the operation of county government.
There is no legal restriction on Delegation members bidding on County projects, but it just strikes me as something a Delegation member ought not do considering that he has one of the 15 votes to approve budgets and line item transfers.... and is a member of the Executive committee.
What were you thinking Mark?
Just seems to me to be poor judgment by a sitting member of the General Court and it should raise some red flags for voters in Carroll County district 03.
