Derry offices to remain closed from campaigning by political candidates
Town Councilors agreed last week to continue to not allow the practice after learning from acting Administrator Larry Budreau that a town employee had asked about the town’s policy on candidates coming into local offices.
“The practice of the town for the last several years has been not to allow that,” he said. “And I’m here today to seek some guidance.”
“I think that interfering with employees by talking to them during the work hour is totally inappropriate,” he said.
Budreau said seated elected officials sometimes look for a convenient site, such as Town Hall, to talk to their constituents. “We allow seated officials to visit and conduct business; we don’t promote electioneering,” Budreau said.
The council agreed to allow Budreau to continue with the policy after being asked by Council Chairman Mark Osborne.
