Focused on the Four Villages and One Merrimack
As your Town Councilor for the past 10 years, I have listened to all Merrimack citizens with courtesy and respect. I have worked diligently to put the people's concerns and the community's needs first for Merrimack. With a proven, common-sense track record of problem-solving and community-building for Merrimack, I will bring those same values to Concord in support of Merrimack, and be a true bipartisan leader for Merrimack in our state government. -Bill
"Bill Boyd has my enthusiastic support for State Representative. He’s delivered for the people of Merrimack as a Town Councilor. As a member of the NH Drinking Water and Ground Water Advisory Commission, Bill is a leader in protecting public drinking water in Merrimack. No one will work harder than Bill to save our New Hampshire Advantage and he is against a sales and income tax. The families and businesses of Merrimack will be well served by Bill Boyd working for them in the State House, and I urge all to vote for Bill."
-Governor Chris Sununu
Town Councilor Bill Boyd was originally elected to the Merrimack Town Council in 2011 and was re-elected in 2020 to a 4th term. The Town manages a $33 million dollar budget with over 200 full-time and part-time employees. The ninth-largest municipality in New Hampshire, Merrimack was named the 23rd Best Place to Live in the United States by CNN Money Magazine in 2013 and continues to be ranked in the Top 10 of the most safest communities in New Hampshire by SafeWise. His colleagues recently re-elected him Vice-Chair of the Town Council.
Bill currently serves as the Council’s representative to the Planning Board and the Nashua Regional Planning Commission. He was also appointed by New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu to serve on the New Hampshire Drinking Water and Ground Water Advisory Commission which manages a trust fund offering grants, revolving loans and matching funds to statewide water projects involving infrastructure, source water development, wellhead protection and water quality.
Bill is a 1991 graduate of Boston College and employed as a real estate title examiner. Married to his wife, Michele, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, for 17 years, they have a teenage daughter, Jade, who is a freshman at Plymouth State University. They also own the Midnight Run Racing Kennel; home to 24 Alaskan Husky & German Short-Haired Pointer Hybrid Sprint sled dogs. Bill’s personal interests include running, dog-powered sports, politics and government, reading, chess, music, Boston sports (including his alma mater, Boston College) and family.
When I first ran for the Town Council in 2011, I personally felt that our growing community was changing, but how our community changed would be the question. Consequently, I focused on the "quality of life" issues ensuring that Merrimack remains the best place in New Hampshire to live, work, raise a family and retire: a stable tax rate, strong property values, quality economic development and responsible budgeting that balanced taxpayer concerns while addressing community needs. As your Town Councilor, I have worked publicly and privately on a variety of issues impacting Merrimack while ensuring our community has had the best quality of life possible. In this process, I have learned that the things people can accomplish when we are not worried about who gets credit are limitless. This philosophy will ensure Merrimack's voice is continually heard in Concord.
