An Active Problem Solver

 September 17, 2014

Voting for Sean Scanlon as the next state representative for Guilford is a positive vote for the future of our town, and I write to support his candidacy.

Natural Integrity, Compassion, and Intelligence

 September 10, 2014

I am writing this letter in support of Peter Barrett for the Madison-Guilford probate judge position.

Leading the Charge

 September 10, 2014

I am supporting Sean Scanlon for state representative because of his vast knowledge and insight into the issues facing our education system. As someone who worked closely with Sean in bringing full-day kindergarten to Guilford, I honestly believe that, without...

Commitment to Public Service

 September 10, 2014

What a pleasure it is to see a former student grow into a thoughtful, smart, dedicated individual. I am supporting Sean Scanlon for state representative because of his commitment to public education. Sean has worked with the supporters of the new high school and...

Asks, Listens, Acts

 September 10, 2014

A few weeks ago, I received a survey in the mail from Sean Scanlon, who is a candidate for state representative for the 98th District. The survey, directed at seniors, spoke volumes about the way Sean works in our community: He asks questions, he listens, and...

A Proactive, Compassionate Voice

 September 10, 2014

Sean Scanlon is without a doubt the best candidate for Guilford in the upcoming Nov. 4 election for state representative in the 98th District. He is running to replace Patricia Widlitz, who is retiring and has served our community in an extraordinary way.

Best Suited for the Job

 September 3, 2014

I am writing in support of Sean Scanlon for state representative. As a registered independent, I have always prided myself on voting for the candidate I think is best suited for the job, regardless of the party. A few weeks ago I had the chance to meet with...

On the Right Path

 August 27, 2014

Thanks for your Aug. 7 article ["Greenway Trail Gets Going"] announcing the public hearing for Shoreline Greenway Trail (SGT)'s first section in Guilford last week-it helped us have a good turnout of almost 50 folks!

Consider All the People

 August 27, 2014

I would like to thank Mr. Edward Dinse for his Aug. 14 letter to the editor ["Not Doing the Community Any Good"]. I agree with his opinion totally. We need more people asking questions. Preferably before proposals get approved.

Working Against One Another

 August 20, 2014

It made me smile a very sad smile when I read the request from the Guilford Garden Club for donations to the Tree Fund. The Tree Fund makes it possible to plant trees wherever needed on town property.

Only Takes a Split Second

 August 20, 2014

I'm alarmed when I see our high-schoolers jogging on New England Road, West Lake Avenue, or any road with cars for that matter. Doesn't the high school have a running track? Do these kids have permission slips from their parents to be running there? As a parent...

In Such a Hurry

 August 20, 2014

In regards to Carol Ann Swan's Aug. 7 letter to the editor regarding the geese crossing ["Let Them Cross"], I also witnessed the same incident.

This Problem Is Real

 August 13, 2014

I was recently approached by the Guilford Police Department and asked if I knew who was behind the illegal distribution of "gang stalking" flyers in Guilford.

Not Doing the Community Any Good

 August 13, 2014

I am tired of calls for civility when people in decision-making positions are questioned for whatever reason. Mr. Richard Evans wrote to defend his pal Tony Fappiano, whom he assumes is under attack [July 31 letter "Owes an Apology"]. Good for him. But instead...

Unified in Our Determination

 August 6, 2014

As shocking as it may be to have Mr. Tony Fappiano's name used in a "gang stalking" flyer, and as diligent a public servant as he may be, it's also shocking to have the West End Planning Committee members implicated in this unless there is clear evidence for...

The Tradition of Excellence

 August 6, 2014

The citizens of Guilford and Madison have been very fortunate to have had an outstanding individual serving as their judge of probate for the past 19 years. Joel Helander exercised great compassion, sensitivity, and practicality in serving all citizens having...

Let Them Cross

 August 6, 2014

On July 26, while driving on Stone House Lane in Guilford, I was fortunate enough to witness a wonderful sight of more than two dozen Canada geese walking across the road en route to the field located at the Guilford Fairgrounds. With my mother as...

Town's Cultural Riches

 July 30, 2014

Guilford Art Center would like to thank the Town of Guilford, its citizens and businesses, and our many volunteers who helped to make the 57th annual Craft Expo on the Guilford Green another wonderful event. This year's Craft Expo benefitted...

Owes an Apology

 July 30, 2014

Once again I find myself writing a letter in wonder of what has happened to the civility in Guilford. I think we as a town are better than what we have recently shown in matters pertaining to the Planning & Zoning Commission.

When People Come Together

 July 23, 2014

Thanks go to the Park & Recreation Department, Guilford Art Center, the School of Rock, and local businesses and residents who supported This is Guilford on Saturday, July 12. Their attendance, prize donations, and participation in our mobile scavenger hunt...

Professionalism that is Truly Inspiring

 July 23, 2014

Another reason to appreciate living in our Town of Guilford is the wonderful service provided by Guilford Youth & Family Services (GY&FS). Unless you are part of the organization, one of the many families who receive direct services, or involved in the...

Takes Bullying into the Public Square

 July 16, 2014

I am deeply troubled by the recent incidents of propagandizing and allegations of "gang stalking" targeted at Tony Fappiano. I have known Tony for the 37 years I have lived in Guilford and I know him to be an individual of great integrity with unquestionable...

A Better Way to Celebrate

 July 16, 2014

I have noticed over the years that there are many Mylar balloons displayed for Guilford High School (GHS) graduates. These balloons are harmful and sometimes deadly to many types of wildlife. Birds, for example, can eat the ribbon from the balloons, but they are...

What Will Happen?

 July 9, 2014

I write this after tax bills have been received and monthly mortgage payments have increased. In 2013, we saw an approximately six percent increase in our taxes, while this year our mill rate has increased by 18.9 percent.

One Bakery, Many Thanks

 July 9, 2014

Two organizations and one big thank you: The thank you is to Hen & Heifer owners Jeffrey Capone and Whang Su. Rather than a tip jar, an antique vase sits on the counter inviting customers to give a donation to Guilford Interfaith Ministries's Shattuck Fund.
