Candidates night is in the books for 2018, few people take the time to attend any more.
Jeff Bennett - for selectmen. 
Served previously as selectmen and currently serve on Advisory Committee since 2015.

As one political sign out there states; it is time for a change and I agree with that. 

Past service gives me experience, lessons learned by some good decisions and some mistakes, which in my opinion gives me guidance to be a better selectmen. 

The current selectmen policies & procedures in place were brought forward by me while serving as a selectmen.
Attendance at selectmen meetings; 
There are five elected selectmen, therefore there should be 5 selectmen at most if not all meetings. There were 8 district reorganization committee meetings and as a representative for Advisory Committee, I made all of them. Selectmen representative made 2. I attended all of the joint budget meetings with selectmen. 
I miss few meetings when I serve. 
For the office of the board of selectmen, I am ready. 

Please vote on May 7, 2018 - 11:00 A.M. til 7:00 P.M

Accountability - All Town employee salaries should be listed in the Annual Town report

All end of year financial transfers / non-town meeting should be in the Town Report

Audits are done, we are told we have a good financial team in place, we have good numbers.

There is no reason that information should not be in the Annual Town Report - 
Unless selectmen do not wish it in there.
