Portsmouth Water elections to be held June 10

The Portsmouth Water and Fire District holds its annual election of officers on Wednesday, June 10 at the District main office at 1944 East Main Road, and everyone who is a ratepayer in the district can vote. Polls open at 7am and close at 8pm.

This year, four positions are up for election -- one Tax Collector, one Treasurer, and two Tax Assessors. All four races are uncontested, with incumbents running for re-election.

For Tax Collector, Fred Faerber is seeking re-election, incumbent Treasurer Allen Shers is seeking another term, and Tax Assessors Ted Czech and Michael Nott are also running for re-election.

As I remind people every year, this is one of those rare elections where write-ins can (and, in the past, have) resulted in upsets, so I urge everyone to take a few minutes out of your day to stop by and vote. I'll remind you.
