Voters heading to the polls in Derry, Chester
David Fischer and Marc Flattes are vying for the seat that became open when Councilor Neil Wetherbee said he would not be seeking re-election.
“I have a good idea of how an organization works and how you work together as a group and how you move forward with goals,” Fischer said.
Flattes serves as vice chairman of the town’s Energy and Environmental committee.
“I have had a very interesting life,” he said.
He said he is running for the seat to address the town’s high taxes and to help make the town more affordable for local residents.
Polls are open on Tuesday for District 3 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Pinkerton Academy gymnasium.
DERRY -- Voters will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide a variety of races, including a crowded field for library trustees.
Councilor-at-large candidate Joshua Bourdon is running unopposed for the seat that is currently held by Brad Benson. The at-large seat opened up when incumbent Benson recently said he would not seek another term.
Running for Derry Public Library trustee are: Phyllis D. Howard, M. “Jackie” Dempsey, Lynne S. Mann, James J. Thomas, Christina D. Mentus and Dorothy Wiley.
Candidates for a six-year term for supervisor of the checklist are Renee Routhier and Janet Bhagat. Vying for a four-year term for supervisor of the checklist are Lorraine Routhier and Peg Mullins.
Voters to decide on $80.5m school budget
At the start of the deliberative session last month, school officials said they took the unusual step of reducing the proposed budget by about $277,000 because they had recently learned 106 Hooksett students would be attending Pinkerton Academy next year.
Part of the decrease in this year’s budget can be attributed to the reduction of positions due to declining enrollment, according to school officials.
School district meeting tonight
CHESTER -- Voters will consider a proposed budget of $11,907,747 among several other articles on the warrant at this year’s School District Meeting on Monday.
During the meeting, voters can ask questions and propose changes to the articles.
The proposed budget represents an increase of approximately $273,000 over the current year’s budget.
