A LETTER TO THE CITIZENS OF TROY

From the Issue: 
November 2011
On 09/19/11 I did yell down to the seesaw area where 2 kids were being rough on the seesaw.  I was a couple of hundred feet away.  Whether they are under twelve years of age or not is not the point, but they did look older.  The skinny kid, your son, Jen, was standing on one side and the heavy set kid was jumping up and down while sitting.  I told them, or yelled at them, not ranting and raving as you state.  The mentor thought they were “just having fun.”  I said too many people have gone thru a lot of time and effort to get the playground up and running.  I think the playground should be for even smaller kids, given the size and weight of kids these days.  I also yelled down at them when they were trying to shoot the geese with their giant water blasters, and when that did not work, they started throwing stuff.

Today, 9/19/11, my son and his friend went to Sand Dam with my son's mentor.  They were apparently playing on the sea-saw and according to the adult who was with them; another Adult Troy Resident began yelling at them that they were "horsing around" and they were not to be on the see-saw as they were too old and too big.  This resident went as far as threatening to call the police on our son and his friend.  When my husband and I heard this story we were less than impressed.  Our son has adult supervision wherever he goes due to his developmental delays.  If he were doing something that were to cause damage to the playground, his adult supervision would have dealt with it appropriately.

What's good for our kids is good for our town!

I am writing this article to let the people of Troy know what a truly magnificent school we have and how fortunate we are to have, in addition to a great school with an incredibly caring, creative and knowledgeable staff, a before and after school program!  I myself, like many inhabitants of this lovely town, have to work.  I would not be able to work and live in this town without the NCLA (No Child Left Alone) program, which runs the before and after school program through the capable hands of the director, Jean Isgro, and her staff.  Without this program I would not be able to work because I would not be able to secure sufficient and affordable child care.  I am not alone in this situation.  In fact, over 90% of the people who utilize this program are working parents/guardians of the wonderful children who attend NCLA.

Hello, Selectman candidate Tom Carroll here.  I want you to vote for me for Selectman on Tuesday March 8, primarily because I will bring needed skills to Troy’s Select Board.  As I explained last month I am an accountant by trade and specialize in internal controls evaluation and improvement.  I will provide a strong managerial and coordinating presence for our valued Town employees, various Town commission and board members.  While I look forward to being supportive towards these people, ultimately we all answer to you the Townsfolk.

Citizens of Troy- I’m running for a three year term because I would like to build on the positive changes the board has made over the last year.  Troy faces many challenges as do all communities throughout New Hampshire and the country.  Declining revenues & property values threaten us the most.  We need to have a town government to serve our residents in the most cost effective way, while maintaining the best level of service.

To accomplish this will be no easy task.  Together the Board has worked at evaluating all Town departments & services to see where operational changes could be made with the least impact while at the same time reducing costs.  I would never propose a change that would threaten the public safety of our community, however I do believe in using all available resources that Troy is entitled to use as a way to reduce the tax impact.

I would welcome the opportunity to continue as selectman to keep Troy an affordable community now and into the future. Thank you…Tom Walsh

FRANCIS FOURNIER-SELECTMAN

Hello my name is Francis Fournier candidate for selectman.  I have been a resident since 1967, I served 3 years on the Planning Board, 1 year as secretary, 1 year as Vice Chairman.  I was also involved in the research and preparation of the Master Plan and Planning Board Representative for the Master Plan Steering Committee.  I was also involved in the clean up of the Rockwood Brook Hazardous Waste Site and I am presently a member of the Industrial Development Authority and I'm deeply concerned with the amount of property taxes we pay and will be determined to cut costs and lower taxes.

I am a firm believer that if someone considers running for selectman they should first serve on various boards to familiarize themselves with the inner workings of the Town.  I believe I have that experience plus good old common sense and look forward to serving you and personally addressing your concerns.
