Pascucci write-in candidate for Selectman
Local businessman semi-serious about running

GOFFSTOWN - Steve Pascucci, owner of The Village Trestle, has tossed his top-hat into the local political ring with a last minutes write-in campaign for Selectman.

Pascussi, well known in the community for his charitable work and who hosts a painting show on GTV, was approached over the weekend by local residents Bill Gordon and Bill Wynne with the idea of running.  

Currently, incumbent Scott Gross and resident David Pierce are running unopposed for the two open seats on the Board of Selectmen.

In an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader, Pascucci, 51, said "It's just to get people to get up and vote is why I did this."  He also said, "People are taking this seriously.  They're serious and they're sending me money."  So far, Pascucci has returned any campaign contributions he has received, money he hopes will instead be donated to the Goffstown Food Pantry, one of the organizations he actively supports.

But many residents have come out in support of Pascucci's candidacy, pointing out he has name recognition - and business skills - to become an effective selectman.

"Under the mask of a crazy stunt, it has a great deal of sincerity," said Gordon.  "Steve does not bring - as far as I can determine - an agenda to the table, other than just the best for the town and the best for the citizens.  Being a businessman, he seems to be a person that is going to be very fiscally conservative."

Resident Dawn Brown echoed some of Gordon's points.  "I think he would be good for the community. He's got a lot of good ideas and they usually work out well when he puts his mind to it."

Voters will get their chance to decide on Pascucci's candidacy on Tuesday. March 9th.
