If you get elected, the first thing would be to help Russell and Brown understand that this position is non-partisan (per the Town website)and you represent all the people in Town. Secondly, maybe you could help Russell (Mr. Irreverent) understand how small he looks by not wearing a mask. Again, this position is for the people and not about making childish political statements.

I appreciate your support. Councilman Russell’s wife and my wife both work in healthcare and we are not uninformed in this area. It is probably naive to assume that there isn’t some reflection of partisanship among local politics but I do hope to represent a more comprehensive perspective and will endeavor to earn your trust as this process continues over the next year.

I agree & since Mr Russell’s wife works in healthcare, he should be very aware that mask should be worn to help stop this virus, I mean, everyone else had theirs on during the meeting.

I work in residential appraisals not to be confused as a licensed Appraiser. And you left off my five years of teaching experience and kind of mangled my statement about our tendency to hire consultants from Chicago for everything. I’m advocating for lowering personal property taxes, lowering the tax on business equipment (which is regressive), and lowering the restaurant tax (which isn’t helping our squeezed restaurant industry).
