Letter To The Editor


To my fellow citizens of Gilmanton:

Local government is surprisingly complex and its smooth functioning is essential to the ongoing well-being of our community.  Citizens who step forward, either for election to office or as volunteers on various boards, deserve our respect. They give of their time and energy to make our Town work.   For new members there is a steep learning curve.  Many decisions are governed by statute, some issues have a complex history, and the best route is not always clear.  Few decisions will please all constituents.


But when we disagree, we are called upon to do so respectfully and thoughtfully.  Personal attacks have no place in the process.


In Gilmanton we have elected three selectmen willing to undertake the rigors of leadership in Town government.  They have advice from a qualified Town Administrator.  But ultimately they must learn the complexity of the process and make decisions with the best information available to them.  Please join me in supporting our Town government, including our elected and appointed board members.


Be part of the solution!  Check the agenda and attend a board meeting when an issue of concern to you arises or should be addressed.  Learn about the duties and responsibilities of appointed boards - the planning board, conservation commission, historic district commission. Volunteer to serve on one that interests you, or run for a place on the budget committee or one of the several trustee posts. Town government is important to all citizens of Gilmanton. And all of us need to help make it work.


Carolyn Baldwin,
