The average price is the same for both towns, $270k. More importantly, we are not being charged extra for garbage collection, sewer, recycling, street parking, fines, parking tickets, beach parking, ambulance, and other issues. Almost everything is bundled in either the property tax or the car tax, both of which are relatively low. The actual vote totals for proliberty candidates--and the number who are actually getting elected--is much higher than in other parts of the seacoast region, even going all the way out to Barrington.

Our two new reps (both Perkins) appear to be proliberty folks, and Seabrook has produced several A and B Reps.
Martha Fuller Clark is one of 13 CT State Senators, but was nearly tossed out last time by Quandt (NHLA 70%), and will probably be booted in 2010. Seabrook has numerous proliberty and fiscally conservative folks already service in local office, not to mention former LP State Chair Brendan Kelly, who is a Selectman, and who garnered more votes for State Rep than almost any other Libertarian candidate in 2008. Abul Khan is also a fiscally conservative member of the Board of Selectmen.
