Deputy Treasurer Appointed

by Barbara O’Brien Windham Selectmen have appointed a deputy treasurer to fill in during absences of the town treasurer. It was an issue that had been bandied about for several weeks before the decision was made.

During the selectmen’s meeting on June 7, selectmen unanimously (4 to 0) appointed Windham resident Bob Coole as deputy treasurer, a position that had not been previously filled. Voting in favor of the appointment were Chairman Charles McMahon, Vice Chairman Bruce Breton, Roger Hohenberger, and Ross McLeod. Selectman Galen Stearns was not in attendance at the time the vote was taken. Although Town Treasurer Robert Skinner had made it clear on several occasions that he didn’t think a deputy treasurer was necessary, selectmen encouraged him to consider the appointment.

Following a non-public session on June 7, McMahon announced that Coole was Skinner’s choice for the job, which includes a stipend of approximately $500 per year. During a recent meeting, Skinner told selectmen that if someone were to be named as deputy treasurer, that person would do what Skinner told him to do and would follow the exact same guidelines used by the treasurer. The idea of appointing a dAeputy treasurer was first raised by Selectman Breton, who has occasionally expressed differences of opinion with Skinner. The treasurer’s job is an elected position in the State of New Hampshire. A deputy treasurer, however, is not elected, but rather someone who is appointed by the town treasurer, with the approval of the board of selectmen. According to State Statute (RSA 41:29), each town may have a deputy treasurer, someone who shall be qualified

in the same manner as the town treasurer and would have the same duties as the town treasurer. The deputy treasurer would perform these duties only in the absence of the town treasurer. Coole is one of a very few Windham residents

who Aregularly attends selectmen’s meetings in person and frequently offers his perspective on topics under discussion. During an earlier meeting, Coole had suggested that the question of whether or not to appoint a deputy treasurer should be taken to voters on Election Day. Following his appointment, Coole said he has

lived in Windham for the past 34 years. “I have always tried to give something back to the town I call home,” he said. Coole has served on the Windham Cable Board for 18 years. He is a founding member of the Windham Endowment for Community Advancement


and also served as the non-profit organization’s very first treasurer. He is also a member of the Windham Highway Safety Committee. According to Coole, his main purpose will be to sign town-issued checks in the absence of the treasurer, should Skinner be unable to do so due to illness, vacation, or other personal reasons. When asked about his qualifications for the job, Coole smiled and said, “Well, I’ve never bounced a check and my checkbook is always balanced.” Coole said he did not go looking for the job of deputy treasurer, but was approached by Skinner and asked to take on the duties.

Parking Equipment Outside Leads to Problems

by Lynne Ober

Multiple departments in Pelham park equipment outside because there is no garage space. The Fire Department has a line of vehicles parked behind the fire station during all kinds of weather. Selectmen have often discussed how this causes more maintenance and much decline in the equipment, but the fire station is, at least, manned 24 hours a day, which deters vandalism. The Highway Department is not so lucky. They park some of their trucks at the Transfer Station, which is unmanned much of the time. Town Administrator Tom Gaydos told selectmen that some of the

trucks had been damaged by vandals who had been throwing rocks at them. However, with so many big-ticket items, such as a fire station and new high school, on the ballot, selectmen have not gone forward with plans for a garage that would house all of the town’s equipment.
