When I saw that Chris Orestis is running for Town Council I felt compelled to write this letter of support. I am the owner of an environmental consulting firm to the design and construction industry. I have known Chris for years and his commitment to the environment and green spaces in Falmouth combined with his business experience and emphasis on economic growth is something we need on the Town Council. Chris understands the balance that needs to be reached between protecting Falmouth’s open spaces with the need to stimulate economic growth. He understands that the two can coexist, and when both are emphasized it is in the best interest of all residents of Falmouth. I will be supporting Chris because that is the balanced approach we need to have on the Town Council and for Falmouth’s future.
