Letter: Falmouth council candidate appreciates votes

After volunteering in Falmouth and serving on several town boards during the past 12 years, I have decided to run for Town Council.

My family and I love Falmouth and know it’s a real gem. We know because our two children attended schools here and my wife and I both work here. I’m proud to be a leader in the Falmouth Land Trust and the town’s Land Management and Acquisitions Committee. Both of these groups have played key roles in the open space acquisition program, recognized as the finest and most ambitious in the state.

Our schools are outstanding, and our town government well-run. My priorities are maintaining the quality of our schools, enhancing Falmouth’s business environment, keeping property taxes low, and carefully managing town finances. I am also committed to managing and maintaining our natural areas and access to trails for recreation.

I would appreciate your vote June 10.
