Please join me in voting for Matt Borrelli for selectman on April 10. While much focus is placed on national and state elections, one of the offices that affects each of us every day is the Board of Selectmen. By prioritizing how our property tax dollars are spent and by setting our town policies, our selectmen determine the excellence of our schools, the condition of our roads, the quality and content of our services, the state of our buildings, the vibrancy of our business districts and the overall fabric of our community.
I have served on various town committees and boards myself and through this experience I know Matt’s communication and problem-solving skills will serve the entire community well. As a former executive secretary of the Finance Committee and former employee of the Public Works Department, I have seen first-hand how Matt respectfully but thoroughly asks questions that allow him to understand fully the issues before he makes decisions. Matt is the unique combination of a consensus builder and decision-maker, and he will bring a firm, independent, and thoughtful voice to the Board of Selectmen.
When Matt told me in February he was running for selectman and wanted me to chair his campaign, I had a long conversation with him about why he wanted to run. I already knew Matt was a hard worker and had participated in many important decisions and projects for our town, including bringing a new senior center to reality. What struck me most about Matt, however, is that he cares so deeply about the town and its future. Matt was born and raised in Needham and has two young children in the elementary schools. Matt is a stakeholder in the quality of our schools. Matt is a real estate developer and a lawyer who is serving on the Council of Economic Advisers. He has experience with the planning process and believes we can continue to better the town and manage our tax dollars more prudently by prioritizing our building and infrastructure needs, providing a high level of town services, and expanding our commercial tax base. Matt has the expertise to bring these visions to reality.
Whom we choose as selectman is an important decision that will directly and immediately impact our everyday lives. Matt is the right choice. Please join me at the polls on April 10 and vote for Matt Borrelli for selectman.
