Stevens is right choice for town councilor

To the Editor:

As a mother of three and a taxpayer, I take my responsibility to vote seriously. This March 10, Bedford has the opportunity to vote for three new town councilors. I will be voting for Melissa Stevens, and I hope you will too. I have known Melissa and her family for years now. Melissa has a lot of pride in her home state of New Hampshire and in being a Bedford resident. She understands the financial constraints families are under. We are doing the best we can to prepare for the future – retirement, college, and caring for aging parents. The uncertainty of the economy and taxes is adding to an already stressful situation. Melissa knows that smart economic growth will be essential to curbing our growing tax rates. She also understands spending wisely means taking into consideration what our town needs now and what we anticipate our future needs will be. As a mom, Melissa understands that the decisions and choices we make today have an impact on our future. This type of thinking is exactly what our growing town needs. Please join me and support Melissa for town council on Tuesday, March 10. She is a smart, compassionate and dedicated individual. I know our families will be in good hands with Melissa serving us.
