Former Mayor Fair Encourages Write-In for Abbott

Dear Editor:
 
As former Mayor and 15-year Chatham Township Committee member, I urge voters to support Kathy Abbott by a write-in option on the ballot. I worked with Kathy on the Environmental Commission and on Open Space issues.  She always was thoroughly prepared to discuss ideas and options, helping us further goals of the Township.
Having served for five terms, I know how important doing one’s homework is to good decision making. Kathy has served Chatham Township for three years, completing important jobs such as the website update, hiring a new police chief, updating the Master Plan, and bringing attention to the town with the honors of Safe Routes to School Gold Recognition, an MCMUA award for the Single Stream Recycling Video, and an ANJEC Environmental Achievement Award for a demonstration Rain Garden.
 
She has shown successful relationship building with the Borough on the Community Garden shared services, and with volunteers on the 100 per cent donation-funded skate park renovation.  
 

She has responded carefully and responsively to all concerns brought to her by residents. There is so much more she hopes to accomplish, such as more financial transparency, hiring of a new Office of Emergency Management manager, and continued merging of the Borough and Township Recreation functions.
 
Kathy Abbott has earned your vote with her integrity, energy and her tireless dedication to serve the Township’s residents.
 
If you’ve never written in a candidate’s name, it is very easy.  On Line 5, go to the far right column, press the button that says “Write In.”  A keyboard will light up and you can type in Kathy Abbott. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Abigail Fair
70 Hillside Avenue
Arlington, MA  02476

Longtime Chatham Resident Passes the Torch to Current Residents

July 13, 2018

To the Editor,

I moved to Chatham from Ohio in 1961 and left just over a year or so ago. My daughters went through the school system and one of them still lives there with her son.

Clearly, we found the Library and local educational opportunities to our liking. 

When it came to giving back to the community, I chose to support the Library and served as a Board member for 15 ...
