To the editor,
On this years Goffstown Ballot there are two open positions. I would encourage voters to write in Guy Caron for budget committee.
Guy has been a dedicated member of the budget committee for several years. Guy has the ability to bring not only knowledge of the budgeting process as well as a respect for all members views and thoughts. I have always been impressed with how prepared he is and his ability to ask the hard question of our public officials.
Please join me in writing in Guy Caron for budget committee on March 10.
The 2015 Goffstown School Deliberative Session is in the books. I would estimate there were about 36, to not more than 50, residents in attendance. Of that, maybe about 20 were not related to School personal, School Board or Budget Committee. Kind of sad, and a big difference from days gone by when you’d have 100’s in attendance.
For those attending, it was wonderful to touch base with old friends and watch the awards being passed out. A great video by GTV was shown commemorating the award recepiants. Log onto the link above to watch the video. Presentation of awards starts at 14:15.
The School Board presentation on the School Operating Budget starts at around 27:13. More details can be found on the Goffstown School District website.
Bottom line: Tax impact of the School Operating Budget is $1.51. Tax impact of the School district default budget is $1.48.
Elected Officials attending were Senator Lou D’Allesandro and NH House Representatives Pierce, Griffin and Rouillard. Budget Committee members, Dubrulle (chair), Manney, French, Spoerl, Pierce, Mitchell, McCarthy and Lemay. Also Selectman, Adams and Lemay.
