Minutes of January 4, 2012

Members present: J.J. Prior, Stephanie Kleine, Chris Pratt, and Jen Labadie
Absent were: Paul Bolduc, Malinda Scherpa, Dana Briggs, Matt Burke, and Julie Wilber. 

The meeting opened at 6:30 PM.  We reviewed the post card mailing.  J.J. added some final touches and will get the mailing done as soon as possible.  Chris will use the information on the card for the flyer to be handed out at the primary election. 

Stephanie said that she hoped that Toni Ellsworth was still willing to host a get together with the committee and some of her contacts in town.  Apparently Toni was disappointed at the response.  Chris noted that this would be a good opportunity to present our arguments so that they can be fine tuned for the hearings.  Stephanie will check, but unless Toni cancels, we are still scheduled for January 8th at 3 PM at Toni and Eli’s house at 192 Apple Hill Road.

Stephanie announced that she has scheduled the school open houses.  On January 25, the Keene Middle School will host, but no time has been set.  On February 4, Harrisville will host from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM.  Nelson will host from 1 until 2.  Keene High School is scheduled for February 27th, but no time has been set.

The committee spent the rest of the meeting going over potential questions and issues for the public hearings.  We decided on a format and method of presentation.  We will be brief and open the floor for questions and concerns.
It was decided that if the meeting at Toni Ellsworth’s raises questions on issues we need to deal with, we will meet again on 11 January 2012 at 6:30 PM at the town hall.  However, if the meeting raises nothing of concern, then we will not meet.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:15 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

C. Christopher Pratt
