6 - March 2, 2012 | Hudson - Litchfield News Edmond Duchesne Outdoors Charlie Chalk with Aquateko Brings
Manufacturing Back Stateside This isn’t just your ordinary “feel good story” about domestic job
growth or a measurable decrease in unemployment. No, this is about fishing industry entrepreneur Keith Kessler and his company “Aquateko” actually improving product quality while simultaneously giving back. Previously, Kessler’s technologically advanced “InvisaSwivel” and “Knot2Kinky” products were wholly produced and or packaged in Taiwan. During Kessler’s quest to return manufacturing to its native land, he happened into a Jacksonville outfit called Pine Castle. The philanthropic company’s mission is to manufacture at a high level while using a workforce of physically challenged adults. And that they do.
Gained is quality control and on time delivery not to mention job creation for citizens who often struggle to join traditional workforces. “These guys have been all over it,” said Kessler. “They’ve been phenomenal. I can’t tell you how happy I am. I’ve had zero complaints from any of my customers about quality. In fact, quite the opposite is true – Aquateko products have improved since I partnered with Pine Castle.”

Candidate for Trustee of the Trust Funds My name is Edmond Duchesne and I am currently a Trustee of
the Trust Funds with my term expiring this month. I was appointed in 2005 by the Board of Selectmen, re-elected in 2006 and 2009. I now announce my desire to continue to serve you as a Trustee of the Trust Funds of Hudson. I have been a resident of Hudson for the past 26 years, married to my wife Theresa for 52 years and have four children. I am an AARP tax-aide at the Hudson Library and the Nashua Senior Center.
Harry A. Schibanoff Announces Candidacy for Hudson Town Treasurer
am also a fourth degree Knight of Columbus. The most
important aspect of a Trustee is to preserve and protect your Trust Funds
which are your tax dollars, and also to fight the erosion of buying power, caused by inflation. During the past six years through June 30, 2011, while working
with my fellow Trustees we have shown an increase in value of the Trust Funds of $2,427,000 in Interest, Dividends and Appreciation. Each month I carefully examine your stock investment portfolios and express my concerns and suggestions to my fellow trustees seeking their ideas and plans for action. Experience has proven us to be successful, so therefore I, Edmond Duchesne, respectfully ask for your vote on March 13, Election Day.
Harry A. Schibanoff recently announced that he is a candidate for the position of Hudson Town Treasurer. His decision to run for Treasurer is based upon his background and experience in the field of finance and accounting. He has been consulting for banks for over thirty years in various areas of bank administration. He also started his own business and has extensive experience as a volunteer. All these factors will provide him with the tools to not only fulfill the duties of Treasurer, but also to improve the current methods being used, to introduce innovative procedures and to evaluate the cost to the Town of its bank services. The role of the Treasurer is to have custody of all moneys belonging to the town. This includes recording all deposits made by the Town and maintaining suitable books for a fair and accurate account of all money received and paid out by the Town. In addition, the Treasurer is all responsible for certain investments of Town funds, financial recordkeeping and reconciliation functions of the Town’s finances. The Treasurer also works closely with the Finance Department to determine that the Town funds are being maintained in a safe and sound manner. Mr. Schibanoff has extensive experience as a volunteer. He served on the board of the former Matthew Thornton Health Plan for 12 years. He was also the Chair and founding Director of the HNHfoundation in Concord for 11 years. The HNHfoundation was instrumental in expanding the State Children’s Health Insurance Program to provide affordable and accessible health care for the children of low and moderate-income families in New Hampshire. In Hudson, he served on the Cable Utility Committee for 17 years and was its Clerk for the last five years. Three years ago, he was appointed to the re-organized Benson Park Committee where he has served as its Chairman. Mr. Schibanoff and his wife Judy have two children who were educated in the Hudson School System. He holds a MBA degree from Boston University.

I’ve been a resident of Hudson for 16 years, but I’ve thought of it as home since my parents moved here in the late 1960s. This past June, I retired after over 20 years of teaching. I’m married to Willis Brucker who is a retired healthcare executive. Our son Michael graduated from Alvirne in 2000 after benefiting from the excellent education he received there. Daughter Katie and grandson Trevor live in Hudson as well. I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 1970 and received a master’s in Education from Smith College in 1989. I traveled with my parents to many places around the world when my father was in the Air Force and continued to travel with my husband as an Army wife. We settled in New England and are New Englanders by choice. I would like to continue being a public servant by serving on the Hudson Board of Selectman. Our seniors have been striving to build a Senior Center so they have a meeting place where they can socialize and pursue health and fitness activities. I would like to help them achieve their goals in the near future. I would like to see our police and firefighters appropriately rewarded for the outstanding services they provide to our community. They have been working in a difficult position without a contract for over three years. We, also, should be giving attention to needed repairs to our infrastructure so that we don’t fall behind and fail to be a viable location for new growth. We want to be an attractive community to new businesses and provide jobs to our residents. Hudson is very special. We have an attractive
common, a great outdoor space in Benson Park, a wonderful new library, award-winning police and firefighters, an outstanding school system, and the natural resources of Robinson and Ottarnic Ponds. But the best thing about Hudson is the residents. They care about their community and give back by volunteering and taking an obvious interest in what happens here. I would like to have a conversation with the residents of Hudson about their vision for the future of Hudson and how we can be a part of a new and positive direction in an economy that has begun and may continue to improve. I would like to do my part for the citizens of Hudson by being elected to the Board of Selectman.
