Letter to the Editor


Everyone is busy, yet all of us owe it to ourselves to attend, at least in part, Chichester Town Meeting - March 14.  Important Warrant Articles will be decided, in particular:


6.  (Capital Reserve Fund) - Annually we approve the budget, usually with amendments, then we ADD a figure to include all items listed for this fund.  All towns need this to budget big ticket expenses, to minimize huge fluctuations.  But remember, it’s adding another $130,000 to the already approved budget, $105,000 of which goes toward the already combined ambulance and fire budget of $194,355 for a town of 2,500+/-.


11.  (municipal budget committee) - it boils down to “Do you want seven (7) individuals to determine YOUR Town budget?  This would nearly cripple taxpayers from changing the recommended budget brought to Town Meeting by limiting changes by only 10%.  We all know what happens when the CCS budget is stagnant and our infrastructure (roads) is neglected, even if the tax rate decreases.


12.  (Selectmen to appoint the Highway Agent) - I do agree there should be qualifications since road construction requires knowledge and know-how AND as long as the governing body is completely OBJECTIVE.  Humans being humans, this is not an easy task to accomplish.  As always, our current road agent is perfectly capable of carrying out Town objectives.  If and when he chooses not to run, perhaps then, residents should ask candidates specific questions about their skills, education and experience to determine who is qualified.  Furthermore, all candidates should be up front and provide all pertinent information relating to their qualifications for any office.


As a member of Capital Improvement Program when asked to recommend repealing Impact Fees, I agreed only if assured that a new building permit fee structure were implemented to replace the said impact fees.

Chichester Saturday Town Meeting Details


To the Residents of Chichester:

YOUR annual Town Meeting will be held this Saturday, March 14th at 10:00am at the Chichester Central School.


Due to a lack of parking at the school, there will be shuttle service from the Town Hall beginning at 9:00am and every fifteen minutes thereafter until 11:30am.  Shuttle service from the School to Town Hall will begin at 12:00pm and every fifteen minutes thereafter until the meeting has vacated.  We are also encouraging attendees to carpool and there will be sufficient reserved parking at the School for all handicapped attendees.


A light lunch will be offered as a fundraiser for the Suncook Valley Police Explorers.  The Explorers are part of the Daniel Webster Council Exploring Department and includes young persons interested in Law Enforcement.  The local post is a joint collaboration of the Chichester and Pittsfield Police Departments. Please support these future officers as they receive training in different areas such as handcuffing procedures, motor vehicle stops, defensive tactics, and participation in such statewide activities as the Police Cadet Academy. 


The Board of Selectmen wish to thank all the residents whom have attended meetings and participated in the budget process during the past few months.  


See you Saturday!

Chichester Central School Students Jump For Their Hearts And Help Save Lives


Students at Chichester Central School are jumping at the chance to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers. On March 20th, 2015 CCS will host its first annual Jump Rope For Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association, which funds lifesaving heart and stroke research and community and educational programs for our youth.


Jump Rope For Heart teaches students how physical fitness benefits the heart and shows them that volunteering can be a fun and positive experience for the whole community. The need to educate children about the importance of physical activity couldn’t be timelier. According to recent studies, about one-third of children ages 2 to 19 are overweight and obese.


“By including physical activity into their daily routines, kids can significantly reduce the onset and burden of heart disease,” said Christine Mondor, local American Heart Association representive.


“By raising money through Jump Rope For Heart, we are preventing heart disease and obesity for the next generation of Americans. Kids are literally jumping into a heart healthier life while becoming passionate about raising money for other kids with sick hearts.”


For 36 years, millions of students have jumped rope and learned about heart health and how nutrition and physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke. Jump Rope For Heart is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and SHAPE America-Society of Health and Physical Educators.


Please help our students help others by making a donation. If you would like to help more, call your nearest American Heart Association office at 603-783-1012 or call 1-800-AHA-USA 1 (1-800-242-8721 ). You can also visit us online at heart.erg/jump.
