I would like to take this moment to express my thanks to Blanche Mills for her service to the town of Whitingham as a selectboard member and chairperson. Blanche was always professional at chairing the meetings and respectful to all in attendance. Those traits are what I strive as a member to carry on.
I would like to welcome the newly appointed member Robin Kingsley to the board, as I’m sure he has a lot to offer and will be an asset to the board’s success in its ability to conduct the business at hand. It’s nice to see a community member express an interest in serving in some capacity. The more diverse, the better we are served.
Also I would like to thank Dwight Williams for offering to be a member in conjuntion with his school board position. Had Robin not shown his interest several months in advance, then Dwight’s offer would have been a great option for the board. I look forward to working with Robin, and taking Dwight up on his offer to keep the selectboard up to speed with the schoolboard business.
