Tom Fitzgerald has my support for his write-in candidacy of selectboard for two years. This is no trivial commitment. As a lifelong resident of Wilmington, I myself have been approached by dozens of voters encouraging me to pursue this elected seat; I am pleased to offer Tom as a prudent alternative. I extend my sincere appreciation of every member of the selectboard, both to those returning and retiring, for their perseverance to serve their many thankless hours.
Tom’s no-nonsense approach to effectively communicate and cut to the chase are only a sampling of his characteristics which parallel the needed qualities of the position. His numerous years as resident, educator, and professional in Wilmington have molded him as the right choice for selectboard. Tom’s day job as a commercial insurance agent has provided him with the daily exposure to numerous accounts of the challenges of operating any business in Wilmington. As a seasoned resident, I know he will address the issues facing our resort town head-on. Tom works for a corporation, he is not in this for personal gain. Tom is no spring chicken either, thus he’s not looking to impress anyone, nor speak in fear of others who may cast judgment of him.
Ladies and gentlemen, I encourage you to support Tom Fitzgerald at the polls on March 4, and grant him the opportunity to serve the people of Wilmington.
