Small the best choice for selectman


Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

Eric Small is running for the office of selectman in Seabrook.

Eric is no stranger to politics; he has been selectman before, he has worked as a town administrator in Hampton Falls, and has been on several boards and committees throughout his life.

If one could use one word to describe Eric, it would be integrity. He has Seabrook’s best interest at heart, he has no hidden agenda, and he will work tirelessly to achieve Seabrook’s goals.

I have known Eric for a long time, even before we worked on the Board of Trustees for the Seabrook Library in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.

As chairman, he led the board through designing and building our new facility and moving the Brown Library building to its new location. The whole process took several years of hard work, with many unpleasant issues throughout, but Eric kept the board on task and we all saw it through to completion.

It is these qualities that Eric will bring to the selectman’s office, and I can foresee good things happening in the town of Seabrook with him on the board.

I no longer live in Seabrook, but if I did, I would surely vote for Eric Small on March 12.
