Let me pause for a moment and politics aside thank Andy Skibitsky for 12 years of dedicated service to Westfield. As someone who served as well on our BOE and knows first-hand the time, commitment and effort it takes daily. Andy was there when this town needed him the most during Sandy and for that know his legacy will be one of caring and human dignity. We may have disagreed on many local and national issues but in the end Andy was always an advocate for all of us in the 07090.

We all wish Andy well and think all of Westfield owes him a debt of gratitude for his service.
