A clear-cut choice in Amesbury election

To the editor:

We have a clear-cut choice in our local election on Nov. 5. We can vote for more of the same last eight years of consistently increasing taxes and ever declining property values or we can vote for a change. We can vote to lower our taxes. We can vote to increase our property values. It could not be a clearer choice!

The candidates that can effect that change and who need your vote are: For mayor, please cast a vote for Ken Gray; councilors at-large, please cast votes for Donna McClure and Eric Bezanson; District 1 councilor, please cast a vote for Paul Sickorez; District 2 councilor, please cast a write-in vote for Mary Louise Bartley; District 3 councilor, please cast a vote for David Moavenzadeh; District 4 councilor, instead of voting for unopposed incumbent, send a message, please cast a write-in vote for Lower R. Taxes; District 5 councilor, please cast a vote for Erin Butt; District 6 councilor, please cast a vote for David Haraske.

Please ask relatives and friends living in Amesbury to vote as well. I am asking for help to make Amesbury competitively affordable with its neighboring communities again. Amesbury needs a vote for change.

R. Claude Gonthier
