District 4 residents have a chance to change the tone of the Freeport Town Council by electing Andy Wellen. I’ve known Andy for more than 25 years and I know he will bring his family values and his skills as a listener and collaborative decision-maker, gained over a long career as a social worker, to his work on the council. Andy will change the tone of the council from one that often seems intolerant of public input to one that is open, inclusive and transparent. Andy is proud of his community and will always respect and listen to those he represents. He will respect our right to express our opinion on important issues, whether he agrees with them or not. Help set a new tone on the Town Council by voting for Andy Wellen.
