Vote Fowler for Town Clerk


Modernization and Convenience - It just makes sense!

This year, the voters of Kingston will have some choices to make. For the first time, three women are running for the extremely important position of Town Clerk-Tax Collector. The Town Clerk is often the first face newcomers to our town will see. She is truly the "face" of our community and thus conveys what we are all about as a town. Melissa would be my first choice because of her friendliness, professionalism, intelligence, and experience.

Why choose Melissa? It's simple...she is the best candidate because she has the skills, knowledge and background we need in this job. Melissa has an Associate degree in Business Management and has worked as an Executive Assistant for thirteen years, and in the banking industry for five years. She has also served as School District Clerk for the Sanborn Regional School District.

She currently works as a legal assistant for a nearby town and has worked very closely with the town clerk there, while in this position. She has done extensive research on software which would modernize the Town Clerk's office and create a more efficient and user friendly environment for Kingston residents. She has a depth of experience using Excel and other computer software.

Wouldn't it be nice to register your car and get dog licenses on line? How about keeping two windows open so the long waits will be minimized? Perhaps you can only get to the town hall at lunch time. Melissa plans to change the schedule so that the town clerk's window is open throughout the day and eliminate closing for lunch in the middle of the day.

And here's the best part...she would work to introduce a system that allows us to pay our taxes using a credit card! How great would that be? I use my card for everything and rack up points. Paying my taxes using the card would be a huge plus for me.

It's simple...we need a person with knowledge, warmth, professionalism, and commitment to our town. Melissa Fowler is that person and will be my choice for Town Clerk in this election. Won't you join me in choosing Melissa?
