Carter: Plunged right into community work

I am pleased to be supporting Chip Carter for the three-year opening on the Guilford Selectboard.

I take it as a good sign when people arrive in town and plunge right into work for a community organization, as Chip has done with the Green River Village Preservation Trust.

Being on a town Selectboard has become a demanding and complex job, and it is important, if we want to preserve this form of small-town government, that we continue to find talented people - including our current chair, Zon Eastes - who are willing to devote their time to the position, as Chip Carter will do.

Guilford voters will be able to meet the candidates at the Pre-Town Meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 6:30 p.m. at Broad Brook Community Center. Vote for Chip on the Australian ballot at Town Meeting on Tuesday, March 5 at Guilford Central School, or ahead of time by contacting the town office or by going to the Vermont Secretary of State's site.
