Statement

Positive economic growth contributes to Guilford’s quality of life,
has a net positive fiscal impact on infrastructure and services,
provides a high degree of protection for the town’s natural resources,
and is sensitive to neighboring residential areas.

So that the cost of services does not burden homeowners, there should
be four benchmarks for economic development: character, scale, quality,
and fiscal impact. But to have development, Guilford must capitalize on
its assets and educate townspeople so we can avoid NIMBY (not in my
back yard) reactions to appropriate development.

I proudly represent Guilford residents and enjoy working on the Board
of Selectmen.
