Zoning Board Candidates

To the Voters of Walpole,

At the Annual Town Meeting Ballot Voting Session on Tuesday March 10, you will note that I am listed as a candidate for the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA).  I signed up to run for the ZBA because I feel that the experience gained in my 40+ year professional career in NH planning and zoning practice would be of value to the Town as we look toward the future.  I did not sign up to run against any other candidate, but simply to serve my community in the capacity for which I am best equipped.


At the time I signed up I did not know that that Ernie Vose would also be a candidate.  Ernie has served Walpole with distinction for many years and in many capacities; including as a long time-member, Chairman, and alternate member of the ZBA.  He deserves to continue his service on the Board for as long as he is willing.  Accordingly, I wish to withdraw my candidacy and urge my fellow Walpoleans to Vote for Ernie Vose for the Zoning Board of Adjustment.  


In withdrawing my candidacy, I ask only that when it re-organizes after the election, the newly constituted Board consider me for a position as an Alternate Member so that I might be able to offer a fresh perspective backed by extensive experience in zoning administration.

    Holly molly, what a magnanimous and thoughtful “withdrawal”. Perhaps some in the Democratic Presidential race will see this as a model for the future of the party. I sure hope a space in our local Zoning Board for an “alternate” is provided for David Edkins. Can’t wait to meet you in person.
