I’m excited that Charlie McBrady has decided to run for the Falmouth Town Council. For me, there are five reasons he will make a difference for all of us in Falmouth. First, he’ll show up on time and be engaged in the work of the council. Second, he grew up in Falmouth and can offer the institutional memory that only comes with a lifetime of living here. Third, he has a successful and practical background in business, which will be critical in setting priorities and being cautious with our money. Fourth, he and Jen are good and active parents in our schools. And finally, and perhaps most important, he won’t come to the council with an agenda or partisan bent, but rather with an open and analytical mind. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Charlie on June 10. And besides, he’s a really nice guy.
