Remember when Falmouth planned and embraced the future? We planned and achieved a more walkable and business friendly Route 1. We planned and purchased open space for fields and trails. We leveraged hundreds of thousands of dollars of private money. Falmouth worked with stakeholders in Pleasant Hill, Blackstrap Hill and Johnson Road to create projects reflected our community values. I don’t recall patronizing comments about “wants and needs.” I remember councilors bringing the same vision to the town that they brought to their businesses, and no successful business neglects investment. We invested in those efforts, including consultants, because we don’t always know the answers. We need that kind of positive energy and vision – combined with experience – on the council. The future is now. That’s why I’m voting for Sean Mahoney. He has the skill, experience and temperament to move us forward rather than backward or sideways.
