I have known Ed since the Summer of 2001 when I joined Laconia Rotary and he was the official scribe-in-chief. See my Ed & ‘University of ‘Whales’ story.
Ed is a good guy. I know that he always tries to do the right thing. So I am glad he is running for Laconia Mayor. I wish him the best of luck.
As he correctly states in the above piece there is a lot of homework he has to do. Not sure whether he will be a Matthew Lahey (1996 – 2003 as Mayor) but I think he will try.
Given the conflicts of interests we have suffered, of late, with ‘The Braysider‘ I will be curious to see how Ed handles the ‘presses’ in the coming months. Knowing Ed I am sure he will publish a few letters that promote his opponents, BUT it will be interesting to see where he draws the line. Not sure whether there is another press outlet for his opponents. But I guess Bloomberg with his publishing empire ran for NYC Mayor, so Ed is following in good footsteps, and like Bloomberg he too can use all of his resources to make sure that he is elected.
Well this should be fun. Best of luck Ed. I guess you will now be too busy to have lunch with us.
