I would like to thank all the people in Newton who helped me during my campaign for Selectman. Although I did not win, what would have been my third term as a selectman, I will continue to assist our community in many capacities on various committees. The calls, flowers, emails and cards I have received has been much appreciated.
Politics is not easy and often times the water is muddied by gossip, negative social media, and rumors. I encourage you to participate in meetings and committees. Your participation enables you to understand what is really going on and will allow you to give input and change outcomes. It takes special people to give up their time to come to meetings, but it is so important to our community.
I look forward to a wonderful year where I can participate on the sidelines and hope you will join me.
