LETTER: Johnson Has The Vote of Departing Selectman
Stronach offers her endorsement of incumbent Selectman Todd Johnson.
To the Editor:
My parting words to my kids as they leave the house each time are “love you, make good choices”. Life is all about making good choices which, as we all know, is not as easy as it sounds!
I recently made a difficult choice not to seek another term on the Board of Selectmen in Tewksbury. However, I made an easy choice to support Todd Johnson’s re-election efforts. Todd will continue to represent our communities’ interests on the Board of Selectman.
I believe that to be an effective board member it is a must to be prepared to make difficult decisions and choices, representing all of the residents of Tewksbury. I believe
- a member must be open to all voices and opinions;
- work to analyze the issues and research the data;
- refrain from doing creative math;
- and, of course, ask questions; aspiring toward TOTAL transparency.
Todd Johnson possesses the proven ability to implement ALL of the above.
His high level of commitment, which I personally admire, is what we as a community should expect and deserve from our elected officials. He understands and advocates for the entire Town of Tewksbury. Most importantly, he has no agenda other than to move Tewksbury forward in a positive direction with the residents’ best interests at the forefront of his decisions making at all times.
Make an easy choice with me. Vote Todd Johnson for Board of Selectman on April 6, 2013.
Anne Marie Stronach
