First and foremost, I want to thank everyone that has expressed their support for my candidacy. I’m very hopeful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Kittery for another term on the Town Council.
As many of you know, my opponents have been spending their campaign working against me, my character, and my reputation. These are desperate attempts to discredit my accomplishments as a public servant. This includes going so far as to bluntly state the only reason they’re running is to make sure I’m not re-elected.
But when they go low, you can count on me to take the high road.
I’m not going to engage in mudslinging. I’m not going to disparage my fellow residents in the race for Town Council. I won’t stoop to their level as that would be as self-serving as their attacks on me. Instead, I’ll spend my time going door-to-door in our community, listening to concerns, hopes, and aspirations for our town.
If I’m reelected, I’ll immediately call for the formation of a Public Safety Commission to establish citizen oversight into our Police, Fire, and Public Works departments. It will work to achieve the following:
- The safety and security of the citizens, employees, and guests of Kittery;
- Offer official channel for department employees to voice their concerns, with total impunity;
- Ensure departments are operating in an ethical manner that is responsible to the taxpayer;
- Ensure all department employees are accountable to the citizens of Kittery
ASK THE OTHER CANDIDATES WHY THEY DON’T WANT MORE CITIZEN OVERSIGHT OF THESE DEPARTMENTS.
WHEN THEY TELL YOU “NO”, ASK YOURSELF WHY. LET THAT SINK IN FOR A MOMENT.
To the countless community members that have expressed their desire to see me reelected, please vote. Those that haven’t decided, you have a choice to make. Are you voting for someone that will dig into the problems…or someone that is more comfortable turning a blind eye to uphold their own individual image?
On November 2nd, please vote for me, Chuck Denault, to return to Town Council. It would be an honor and a privilege to get back into the chambers and facilitate growth in this town and demonstrate these needs for change. Let’s get our voices heard, Kittery.
