Letter: Pizza for the Board Members
To the Editor:
I would like to thank Mike Scelza for informing us about how the Hartford Selectboard often feeds off the taxpayers by ordering pizza. I am a business owner in White River Junction (nine years) and residential taxpayer of Pomfret. I also served five years as an elected official in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, from Claremont, a part-time job for which I earned $100 a year.
Mr. Scelza, you are correct when you say that serving on the Selectboard is a “thankless job,” and I only wonder why one would think the Selectboard would not consider spending this money? I would bet they did, and I’ll bet you a pizza. No, seriously, the Selectboard in Hartford and the boards in other towns work hard for many hours. They make better decisions on full stomachs. It is better than a cold sandwich, not much, but better. If I were a voting resident of Hartford, I would not only agree with providing pizza for them, but would add extra cheese, please!
