Thank You Trisha McCarthy

Thank You Trisha McCarthy

As a resident of Newton, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Trisha McCarthy for her past six years on the Board of Selectmen; as well as for the many other boards and committees she has and still continues to serve on.

Trisha has been one the most dedicated town officials I have had the pleasure to work with in my six years of service to the town.

I, like many other elected officials and volunteers, worked with her on the Town Safety Committee, the Newton Emergency Management Team and the Seabrook Nuclear Emergency Management team. She also participates in a number of other groups and departments in her continuing efforts on behalf of the residents of Newton.

Those of us who worked with her are well aware of how dependable, caring and professional she is in dealings with her colleagues and the public. For those of you who did not have the opportunity to work with her; if you attended or watched any of the Selectman’s meetings during her tenure, especially the years she served as Chairman, you saw firsthand how professionally she conducted the meetings, how knowledgeable she was of not only the operation of the town but of the statutes of the State of New Hampshire. Her extensive knowledge of town affairs was clearly obvious at the recent Candidate’s Night.

I hope that Trisha continues to participate in her other activities in town on behalf of us residents. We need all the intelligent, well trained and professional people we can get. And, who knows, with the Board of Selectmen going from three to five members in 2014, we may see her back on the B.O.S. where she belongs.

Thanks again Trisha.

Bill Landry
