Praise for Costello's help in getting grant

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

Please accept this letter of public thanks to Rep. Michael Costello, D-Newburyport. The Amesbury Carriage Alliance (a joint venture between the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce and Amesbury Carriage Museum) is tremendously grateful for his recent assistance in getting the $20,000 grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to help fund our feasibility study, reported in The Daily News on June 19.

Rep. Costello’s continuous support of our efforts to see the Amesbury Carriage Museum become a reality demonstrates his steadfast interest in preserving Amesbury’s rich history and furthering our path toward the Lower Millyard becoming a regional waterfront hub of recreation, history, commerce, information and opportunity. He simultaneously understands everything that is at stake and the abundant potential. For that and so much more, we are very happy to have Rep. Costello working on our behalf.

Matt Sherrill

Chairman, Amesbury Carriage Alliance
