VOTER'S GUIDE: Center Harbor


Nov 8 General Election







Town Hall, 36 MAIN ST, CENTER HARBOR, NH 03226  


Hours of Voting: 8AM - 7PM


Citizens For Belknap Recommended


Not Recommended



New Hampshire House District 1

1 Seat

Sean Kavanagh (D)

Tom Ploszaj (R)


Our Recommendations

​Mr. Kavanagh is a retired CEO of a corporate leadership consulting firm, and a 10-year resident of Center Harbor.  He recently ran a series called “Better Arguments” to encourage cross-partisan communication.  Mr. Kavanagh notes that he’s “fiscally prudent” and will fight against unfunded mandates that raise taxes while the state runs a surplus.  


Mr. Ploszaj is the incumbent, and ran unopposed in the Primary.  Although his website doesn’t disclose it, he was one of the early Free Staters to move to NH when he settled in the town of Grafton, as noted in the book, “A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear:  The Utopian Plot to Liberate an American Town.”     Mr. Ploszaj is a retired analytical chemist and machinist, who lives in Center Harbor and served 42 years as an EMT and other town positions.  While we appreciate him standing up for Gunstock on August 1, he refused to vote to accept the resignation of David Strang.  

County Sheriff

1 Seat

Bill Wright (R)

Our Recommendations

Mr. Wright is the incumbent sheriff for Belknap County, and defeated his opponent Michael MacFadzen in the Primary, whom Citizens for Belknap supported.   


We wish Sheriff Wright well in his re-election bid and urge him to appoint a highly-skilled manager to take over day-to-day personnel management for the department to address the concerns of the employees.

Registrar of Probate

1 Seat

Alan Glassman (R)

Our Recommendations

Mr. Glassman is the incumbent for Registrar of Probate, serving three terms, and we feel that he will continue to serve the county as a good steward.  He is a retired insurance executive.
