Letter: Richard Scullary Calls Pete Peterson 'Ideal Candidate' for Selectman
Medfield resident Richard Scullary writes in to ask voters to choose Osler "Pete" Peterson for Selectman at the Town Election on Monday, March 26.
Medfield needs a Selectman who is involved in and knowledgeable about the town and its issues, and Medfield deserves a Selectman who is genuinely committed to the town's best interests. Pete Peterson is that person.
Medfield Voting and Town Attendance records, located at the Town Clerk's office, show that Pete has attended every Town Meeting and has regularly voted in state, federal, and town elections since at least 1998, the date the electronic records started recording attendance and voting in Medfield.
Pete's voting record, combined with his extraordinary record of public service (detailed at http://Medfield02052.wordpress.com), make Pete an ideal candidate for Selectman. Pete has been actively and continuously involved in our town since before 1998 on a variety of issues that include projects as important as construction of The Center at Ice House Road, renovation of three schools, and the clean up and redevelopment of Medfield State Hospital.
The same cannot be said of Pete's opponent. The Town Clerk's records show that Pete's opponent has not attended even one Town Meeting since 1998 and has voted in only one town election since 2004. The opponent has not participated in town government at any level since moving to Medfield in 1995.
Voices in our community already have underscored the importance of participating in local government and of voting. Now, it's time for voters to invest in our town government and support the candidate who has a record of active participation and involvement. Vote for Pete Peterson for Selectman on March 26.
Richard W. Scullary
Medfield Resident Since 1988
