Letter To The Editor
Mahar for Selectman: Building Community Together! Voting Day:
husband and I have lived here almost 6 years and actively
participate in our community. I have volunteered for the afterschool
program, Capital Improvement Committee, and Old Home Day Committee
which introduced me to the makings of our town. I became involved in
our local groups such as Women’s Fellowship, Community Helpers, and
End 68 Hours of Hunger to get to know the people of our town, and I
formed the Women in Business group and Barnstead Farmers’ Market to
contribute my area of expertise to the town. All of these efforts
have led me to consider running for an important job as
Selectperson. I feel I am ready and that I can make a difference in
our community as your Selectperson.
these past years we have seen a lot of growth such as new families
and businesses moving into town and some good community changes. I
feel blessed to live in a town filled with wonderful people who
truly care about kids, animals, people, the food we grow, and the
community around us.
Selectperson, in addition to working with others to oversee the town
management, I would like to focus and build on the strengths of our
town, such as the following: create an open and friendly environment
for our people to have a voice, encourage working together as a
whole community versus divisive decision-making, encourage
leadership within our municipal offices and support their efforts to
manage teams and departments more efficiently, and most importantly
create an environment of kindness and respect, encouraging a team
spirited work environment.
join me for a Meet and Greet at the Maple Street Church, Sunday,
February 4th from 1pm to 2:30pm.
