power of a single vote
Presidential elections tend to get all the attention, but there are plenty of "off-year" local Goffstown and New Hampshire state elections coming up that are equally important.
As they say, "all politics is local", and Goffstown issues and candidates are the infrastructure supporting everything being done at the state and federal level.
Never think that your vote doesn't matter. If you
believe that, take a look at what happened at last week's
town deliberative session.
Scott Gross, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, made a
motion to increase the Budget Committee's recommended town
operating budget by $486,564. That motion, voted on
by residents in attendance by secret ballot, subsequently
passed 87-86, the margin of a single vote.
If you did not attend the session and are opposed to the
budget increase, then you have only yourself to blame for
the increase you'll now see in your taxes next year.
Your single vote would have made the difference had you
taken the time to attend.
Remember: Every single vote matters! We urge all
Goffstown voters to weigh in on all the issues in Goffstown
by exercising your right to vote, not only in the upcoming
March town elections, but in the state elections this
It's your duty and responsibility to get involved.
