The ladies of the Andover Service Club (ASC) and I wish to express our best wishes to the Andover community and to neighbors in the surrounding towns who have supported ASC for the past year. You have helped us to fulfill our mission of service to the people of the community and the state. May […]
Too busy? No excuse! This is important work.
Dennis Fenton, a long-time member of the Board of Selectmen, wrote these words in 2009 when he decided to retire from the Board. With his permission, we’re re-running this to encourage people to consider becoming a candidate. First, the fact that you are busy is not a legitimate excuse! Everyone can use that one, but […]
As part of my function as State Representative, I will endeavor to keep Andover, Danbury, and Salisbury residents apprised of developments at the State House in Concord. As a newly elected State Representative, I have spent the last month in training sessions and caucus and committee meetings, culminating in the election of Ms. Norelli as […]

Our trash co-op has finally decided to abandon its single stream business venture. This means that Andover is no longer committed to participate in a single steam recycling (SSR) program. The Andover Board of Selectmen still feel that single stream is the wave of the future for Andover. We would most likely have to pay […]
To voters in Andover, Danbury, and Salisbury who endorsed me in the last Beacon issue: I appreciate your support and your help.
The time has come to make a choice. I am proud of the campaign I have run for State Representative for District 1: Andover, Danbury, and Salisbury. It has been conducted in a civil and respectful manner on both sides. I have embraced a common-sense approach based on balance and bi-partisanship in regard to public […]
