By ROGER AMSDEN, LACONIA DAILY SUNLACONIA — Two of the three Belknap County Commissioners say they are willing to risk an election year confrontation with the Belknap County Delegation over the $1 million cut from their proposed budget. Commission Chairman Dave DeVoy (R-Sanbornton) and Hunter Taylor (R-Alton) last week pressed for going ahead with several projects already in the works and the hiring of a pre-trial coordinator for the Belknap County Corrections Department despite the budget cuts. DeVoy said that with the primary season and general election coming up this year the budget cuts and actions taken on supplemental appropriation requests could play a big role in the campaigns. “We always have a half million dollars left over and I’m going to see that Keith (Corrections Department Superintendent Keith Gray) gets that money,” said DeVoy. “I want to see us moving forward.”The terms of both Taylor and DeVoy expire in January of 2019.
