A vote for Chris Brennick
To the Editor:
Last week, I attended the Meet the Candidates night at the Rumford Town Hall. Although there were only a handful of people, it was worth the time. I knew nothing about three of the five candidates. The format did not allow any interaction from the audience but the answers to the questions gave me a quick and clear opinion of their motive, and agenda for running.
I really did not know much about Chris Brennick or two of the other candidates, but it became clear early on that he had my vote. He comes to the board with no agenda, an open mind and a vision for Rumford that is enthusiastic and positive. He gave thought to the questions and tried to strike a balance between not just reducing the budget but how to move Rumford forward in the future as well. With regards to regionalization, he sees the value and is open to moving the town in that direction.
This is a tough time for our community and I urge you to vote for both Brad Adley and Chris Brennick. Brad brings experience to the table that will be valuable in the upcoming budget challenges. Chris Brennick has a love for Rumford and will make intelligent decisions as well with regards to the budget.
