Support Fournier, Tilton for board

I urge my fellow Milford voters to elect Suzanne Fournier and Roger Tilton to the Board of Selectmen on March 14. Both are smart and well-educated, and both have a clear understanding of the issues before us and a strong desire to serve their community.

Suzanne has been a resident of New Hampshire for more than 40 years. During that time, she has contributed countless hours for causes that protect our state’s natural environment. Here in Milford, she served on the committee to clean up the EPA’s Fletcher Superfund Site. Suzanne feels that Milford’s open spaces, air, water and wildlife are matters of public trust, and when we protect them, we protect the quality of life we all enjoy. She also feels that a public office is a public trust, and so people must serve with the utmost transparency.

Roger first became aware of the idea of public service when he was a young student in the ’60s and two of our great national leaders were assassinated. He has supported progressive causes throughout his adult life. His business and analytical skills, developed during several decades as an investment adviser, would be put to good use on the BOS. He would support a budget that keeps property taxes in check while favoring policies that help small businesses that are rooted in the community. He also sees the need for a sound infrastructure.

Suzanne Fournier and Roger Tilton are eminently qualified to serve as selectmen, and Milford voters would be wise to put them both to work on their behalf.
