Three vie for one seat on Municipal Light Board

(Continued)

Why do you seek a position on the town’s light board? I have 40 years of experience in the telecommunications industry in both engineering and management that I bring to the table; this knowledge, along with the skills I have acquired serving in government, make me a strong candidate for this position.

What would be your first goal on the board? My first goal is to have all RMLP meetings held at night and televised live so that the people can come to meetings and voice their concerns. The current meetings are scheduled at 10 a.m. on a weekday morning. The citizens of Rowley should have the right to come to a meeting without having to take a day off to speak to their elected officials.

Why should voters choose you? Four reasons: 40 years of experience in the telecommunications business in both engineering and management; much knowledge of town bylaws and protocol during service on the Planning Board and currently as a selectmen; my position on the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, which has been a strong networking opportunity with our surrounding communities; and the biggest reason would be trust, integrity and a desire to serve our town.
