Administrative Assistant to the Board of Selectmen (amended 2/26/14)
The Town of Sullivan, New Hampshire is accepting resumes until March 21, 2014, for the position of Administrative Assistant to the Board of Selectmen.
At the request of the Board of Selectmen, the Sullivan Planning Board has worked with the selectmen's representatives to the planning board to clarify the language in several parts of the Community Planning Ordinance which have seemed inconsistent or inadequate. A public hearing, at which the following were approved, was held December 19, 2013.
Below are printed the questions as they will appear on the ballot.
Risa Keene: My husband and I have lived in Sullivan for approximately 19 years. We raised our 3 children here and they attended MRHS. I am running for one of the School Board positions because I believe that a quality education is vitally important for all our children. I have had experience working within the schools as a speech/language therapist and as a parent. I became a member of the school board in September of this year in order to complete the term of a board member who left.
Selectman – 3 years
Laura Merrifield: I am asking for your vote to continue as a member of the Board of Selectmen for the next three year term. In March of 2013 town folks wrote my name in to finish off the term left vacant on the passing of Bob Thayer.
It has been an interesting and fulfilling year. The Board of Selectmen have faced a variety of challenges. It has been a pleasure to work through them with both Gary Patnode and Mark Paquette.

The Sullivan School Board has been very busy working on various projects this winter. Preparing the budget, managing enrollment status changes, collaborating with the different schools, preparing for the closing of the Sullivan school building from MRSD to acquire a “clean title”, and looking at improving the efficiency of the board overall. These are just some of the things we are working this month. Please stay informed by visiting the town website or our Facebook page for additional news.
Here are some recent updates
Everyone’s help is needed to clean Sullivan’s roadsides again this spring. Unfortunately, spring and snow melt generally means many cans, bottles and “you name it” become visible along our roads. If you could take one section of your road and pick up the rubbish, it would be a great help.
For tax year 2014, all property values will be updated to market value as of April 1, 2014, as required by State law. With the real estate market declining over the past few years, most of you will see your property values decrease. However, because values decrease, it DOES NOT mean your property taxes will decrease.
