Fowler for Town Clerk-Tax Collector

I have been a Kingston resident for almost 30 years. I have known Melissa since she moved here with her family. Our children went through the Sanborn school system together. She has always been a positive influence to the kids.

She is incredibly intelligent and is an amazing leader. I have witnessed her manage many organizations in Kingston and under her direction, each organization has improved. She already maintains many qualifications needed for this position. I voted for her in 2009 because I know she has done her homework. Melissa has taken the time to shadow Town Clerks in other towns.

Currently, the only way to register your vehicles is to go to the Town Clerk-Tax Collectors office, if you want to take the time to wait in line. I would like to have the option to register my car online from my home. Melissa will work toward online renewals of registration and licenses so that we can do this from home. Fremont and Newton already use this system.

Currently we are told we have to go to Epping to get a duplicate registration. The Town Clerk-Tax Collector's office should be able to give us a duplicate registration for our vehicles if we have lost ours. In Newton, they give duplicate registrations. Why Does Kingston tell us to go to Epping? Why are we missing this revenue? Melissa will make sure this is done in Kingston

Melissa is planning on changing the hours of the Town Clerks office to make it full service from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mon.-Fri., not closing from 12:00-1:00 p.m., and continue Mon. and Tues. night hours.

Melissa plans on upgrading the computer system to make the office more efficient and therefore, quicker to balance at the end of the day, thus making it unnecessary for employees to stay after hours for long periods of time to balance needless paperwork that can be done on a computer. I have been told by other Town Clerk-Tax Collectors that it should only take about 30-40 minutes to balance the office at the end of the day. The upgrade is already in the budget for 2012 and does not impact our taxes at all. Lets put it to use.

Melissa is honest, trustworthy and a caring individual who will be an extremely valuable asset for the Town Office, I believe as individuals we have a responsibility to the community where we live. Our community is what we make it, or what we fail to make it, the choice is ours, that is why I ask you to join me and Vote Melissa Fowler for Town Clerk - Tax Collector on March 13, 2012.
