Dear Residents of Gilmanton:

I am a candidate for Board of Selectmen. I have served the town as your Selectman for 6 years, 2 years as the Chairman.


I grew up in Gilford and moved to Gilmanton in 1978. My wife, Sandi, of 36 years moved to Gilmanton in the 60s. I care deeply for this town and know many people are hurting in this economy.


The budget for the town of Gilmanton is a fair and responsible budget. I thank the Board of Selectmen and the Budget Committee for the effort. Discussions at the county level concerning a new prison and the way the mutual aid dispatch are funded will have tremendous impact on our taxes.


I will, as your Selectman, work to communicate your concerns with the County Commissioners about this tax burden.


I know people are hurting and taxes are a major concern. Please let me represent your best interest.



Don Guarino





Fellow Gilmanton Residents:

My name is Adam Mini and I am asking for your support as a candidate for the Gilmanton School Board. I have lived in Gilmanton with my wife, Michelle, since 2003. We specifically picked Gilmanton to build our first (and only) home because we loved the community and felt great about raising a family in the town. I feel blessed to be the father of three school age boys including twins (first grade and two kindergartners).   Having three children in the school system has provided the motivation to run for the School Board.  


I desire (like most taxpayers) to have balance in our town spending while ensuring that our children are properly educated and prepared for the future.  Our school has a terrific track record and our town should take a great deal of pride in our accomplishments.


For the last 17 years, my professional background has been in the Information Technology field managing a variety of teams. In my current role, I am responsible for finding the balance between technology solutions and financial goals. If chosen, I look forward to applying these skills to the School Board.


I respectfully request your support for School Board on election day.  



Adam Mini



An Agricultural Commission For Gilmanton


Over the past few months a group of Gilmanton citizens have explored the benefits of establishing an Agricultural Commission in Gilmanton.  The first task was to find out exactly what an agricultural commission is and why it would be a good idea for the Town of Gilmanton.


The legislature has authorized Towns to establish Agricultural Commissions in RSA 674:44-e.  If approved by the Town at Town Meeting, the selectmen appoint members who then work to implement the purposes of the commission.


First of all, it is important to understand that Agricultural Commissions do not have any enforcement powers or regulatory authority. Their role is to advise other town boards and advocate for farming.  


Agricultural Commissions serve as an information bridge between farm businesses and the non-farm public. For example, the planning board may draft an amendment to the town zoning ordinance regulating signs. The Agricultural Commission can advise the planning board of potential impacts on farm businesses, and recommend ways the ordinance could be written to assist farm businesses, such as allowing temporary signs for seasonal crops.


Contributions an Agricultural Commission can make to farming in the community include:


Advise and work with other boards and commissions on issues facing farming in town;

Conduct inventories of agricultural resources;

Conduct inventories of historic farms and buildings;

Educate the public on matters relating to farming and agriculture;

Serve as a local voice, advocating for farmers, farm businesses and farm interests;

Provide visibility for farming;

Give farmers a place to go for help;

Help resolve farm related problems or conflicts;

Help protect farmland and other natural resources.


The warrant article authorizing the selectmen to appoint an agricultural commission is #39 on the March 12 ballot.
