I write to thank the voters of Woodbridge for electing me to the Board of Selectmen. I look forward to being sworn in this summer and to working hard in the interests of our town. As I have said many times, I believe the National political scene and its divisive partisanship are not relevant to the challenges facing us locally. We are neighbors trying to make good decisions for our community, and in that spirit, I am looking forward to joining the Board of Selectmen team and representing you. I intend to advocate for the positions that were in the platform I ran on, and I am open to input from Woodbridge residents.
That being said, our Democracy depends on citizen involvement and I hope that you will share this responsibility with me. Our current Board of Selectmen have worked hard to give us an opportunity for our first in-person meeting in about 15 months. They have provided a safe environment for the annual town meeting that is required by our town charter. Democracy is strengthened when citizens participate, so I hope that I will see many of you there. If the current plans go unaltered, we will meet on Wednesday, June 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Woodbridge Firehouse.
