Nomination papers submitted for Portsmouth Water Board election
Today, our campaign turned in almost 60 signatures on nomination papers, which is the first step to appearing on the ballot for the Portsmouth Water and Fire District Board election on June 13. The minimum number of signatures required is 25, but candidates always get extras in case some are not validated by the canvasser.
Collecting signatures is a great opportunity to have conversations with voters about their issues, and over the last three days, I heard questions about how water quality information is communicated and the relatively recent change to a quarterly billing cycle, among others.
I want to thank my friends Terri Cortvriend and Linda Ujifusa who helped collect signatures. Also have to say thanks to the folks who have already contributed to our campaign — because of their generous contributions, I can now plan additional opportunities to get my message out. Thank you.
