The candidate statement of incumbent Selectman Todd Johnson.
Monday, March 11
Tewksbury Voters: My name is Todd Johnson. I have been honored to serve you as a selectman for the past six years. During those two terms, I was selected by my colleagues to serve as their chairman four consecutive years. I believe that is a reflection of their confidence in my leadership abilities. I assumed my duties during the difficult economic times we have come to know as the “Great Recession”. The impact of these conditions on our local government was profound, requiring vision, discipline, and hard work. Due to resignations of various colleagues, there was a time when you were served by only three selectmen, not the usual five. I, along with two colleagues, worked hard to ensure all of our duties were discharged on your …

DiFruscia says he disagrees with selectman about many issues but not about what's best for Tewksbury.
Monday, March 19, 2012
To The Editor: David Gay and I disagree on just about all county, state, and federal elections and issues. We watch different news channels and have opposite ideas of the perfect world. David and I do, however, agree on what is best for Tewksbury. I stand with him on his sensible approach to sending the town charter to the voters. I am a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals and have been for ten years. I have worked with David on managed growth and not being held hostage by developers and 40B. I am also an elected member of the Housing Authority and have witnessed David’s support for working and retired Tewksbury residents as a priority of affordable housing. He is against the “gimmie girls” and freebees for others. David and I …
