Nadzan for alderman: A change in Ward 12
In Manchester’s Ward 12, voters have a stark choice. They can go for current Alderman Patrick Arnold, a reliable vote for higher spending, or with newcomer Mark Nadzan, who has a passion for fighting for taxpayers. They should go with Nadzan.
A salesman with two young children, Nadzan says he was inspired to run for alderman when he saw that Arnold had no opposition. “I cannot have the people of Ward 12 not have a conservative option for the board,” he said.
“I want to be the taxpayers’ friend,” Nadzan told us in an interview. “I own a house. I pay property taxes. I know what it feels like to see your property taxes go up and receive less in services. It would drive me batty.”
Nadzan wants to keep property taxes in check by keeping spending in check. One of the ways he hopes to do that is by negotiating better contracts with city employees. He thinks employees should have job security and predictable benefits, but both should be reasonable and affordable for the taxpayers. “I think if you get to the point where you have more stable, more manageable contracts, you can hire more,” he said, and that would mean more police officers on the streets and more firefighters.
Nadzan is for the city spending cap and for better managing city school budgets. His biggest priority, he said, would be making sure the taxpayers get good value for their tax dollars.
We think Nadzan makes a lot of sense and would be a good alderman. He deserves the support of Ward 12 voters.
