On June 9, we will have the pleasure to cast two votes for two candidates for the Readfield Select Board — Bruce Bourgoine and Christine Grover Sammons.

As a School Board member, I (Gary Keilty) worked with Christine’s mom Norma Grover, who was our chairwoman. Chris has worked with us tirelessly during the past year as a member of Readfield Trails. Her work ethic is in Norma’s tradition. The Readfield financials need a person with her background.

Bruce, as a former member of the Readfield School Board, is going to have the community experience to analyze and answer what for most of us is a complicated process that makes up 73 percent of the Readfield town budget. As the town continues to look at its options at the town library, it will be nice to have Bruce, a former Library Committee member, serving on the Select Board.
