Residents of Barnstead, Belmont, Gilmanton,
My name is Glen Waring and I request your vote
in the Republican primary on September 13th for the District 2 Belknap
County Commissioner seat.
I grew up in Goffstown and have lived in NH
all of my life. Currently, I reside in Gilmanton, with my wife and two
teenage sons. After graduating from Goffstown High school, I attended
New Hampshire College (now Southern New Hampshire University) earning a
Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Accounting.
I began my career as a finance professional at
AutoServ in Tilton. I spent the next 20 years working as a senior level
Finance Officer in the automotive industry for a handful of dealerships.
In 2011 I took my experience and knowledge from the private to the
public sector, becoming Belknap County’s first Finance Director. It was
there that I developed an expertise in municipal fund accounting, a
necessity for proper administration of municipalities in NH. Throughout
my nearly 25 years of professional finance experience I have shown the
ability to create, analyze, and manage budgets in excess of $30 million.
I maintain a high level of attention to detail, cost conscious, fiscally
conservative and bottom line oriented. I understand current obligations,
requirements, and also can use financial tools to predict future
revenues and expenses to plan accordingly.
I would like to emphasize my ability to be
able work collaboratively with all relative individuals in an effort to
maximize efficiencies, and I look forward to being able to work with the
other County Commissioners to continue to find savings and keep our
Due to my 25 years of professional experience
I am uniquely qualified for the position of County Commissioner, and ask
for your vote on September 13th.
