    Dave, I’m interested in running for town council. I have been on the Conservation Board for 6 years and have run for town office before.(unsuccessfully in 1995) I am familiar with town gov’t and many of the on going issues including the rising threat from developers. Please consider me and let me know if there is any way I can help the party. Thanks Dan Woolaver
