On Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m. at the town office the Parks & Recreation Commission will present a draft plan for the second phase of the Carpenter Park project funded by their second LWCF grant. This year they hope to construct a community building to replace the snack shack and to expand the playground area. Other features are planned for next year. As with the first grant, they are soliciting donations of equipment, materials, and labor as partial town match for the LWCF funds. Please attend the meeting, hear the plans, and find out what you can do to help.

Citizens of Allenstown, Chichester, Deerfield, Epsom, and Pembroke.


We are a year from our towns’ school budget meetings, but work needs to begin now.


The SAU, which performs certain administrative functions for our districts, costs our towns millions of dollars. This budget is created and approved without any direct input from voters.  In this insulated environment, the budget has grown out of control and with very little correlation to services provided.


This year, Chichester voters disapproved a Warrant Article to replace this system with one involving greater transparency and community input.  Supporters like me did a poor job of informing voters, while some with interests in continuing the status quo worked hard to spread disinformation.


I hope we can re-introduce the article next year in all five towns, and will work this year to clarify what the proposal would and would not do.  In brief:


- It would require SAU budgets to be approved by voters

- It would motivate the SAU to explain and justify budget increases

- It requires us to get all five towns onboard.

- It would NOT withdraw us from the SAU


I look forward to discussing this proposal with anyone interested.


Pat Testerman
