District 3 supervisor is not

District 3 supervisor is not a job for someone who’s only apparent qualification is opposition to NH 2020, a program on which only a tiny percentage of the county’s budget is being spent. The public will have its differences concerning the value of environmental protection versus irresponsible development, but we shouldn’t over-emphasize what should be minor areas of dissent in relation to the true qualifications required to administer such a diverse community as ours.

Johnson’s only stated objection to Conklin is the way NH 2020 was administered, not the program itself, hardly a reason to change horses midstream. Consider re-electing Conklin in District 4.
