Three candidates seek two Merrimack town council seats
Two incumbents, including Finlay Rothhaus and Bill Boyd, along with a current state representative, Lenette Peterson, are hoping to secure a position on the board.
"I do not believe in settling, as Merrimack deserves a town council member who has their best interests at heart," she said.
Rothhaus, of 14 Kittredge Lane, is self-employed and previously served as a state representative in the 1990s. He has held numerous past positions in Merrimack, including selectman, planning board member, municipal budget committee member, school district planning and building committee member and more.
"I would like to continue the focus the council has had on economic development and providing for a sound infrastructure while at the same time maintaining a stable town property tax rate," said Rothhaus.
"A resolution to these problems, for the most part, lies with the state," he said. "In the meantime, we must continue finding creative ways to lessen our employees financial impact on these costs."
As far as the town's existing spending plan, Rothhaus believes the town council has handled the budget well by maintaining a stable property tax rate and simultaneously placing greater emphasis on town infrastructure needs.
Boyd, of 139 Joppa Road, is a provider relations representative for Cenpatico.
He has served on the town council since 2011, and previously sat on other town boards, including the Economic Development Citizens Advisory Committee, planning board and school budget committee.
Election day is Tuesday. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at James Mastricola Upper Elementary School.
