My time as a Westfield Town Councilman has now passed. It was a privilege to serve Westfield in this role these past 12 years. And I am humbled more than you will ever know by your overwhelming support and trust to place me in office way back in 2008 and then honoring me by re-electing for two more terms.
There are far too many individuals that I would personally like to thank, but here I would like to thank my very special wife Lori and my incredible kids, Christopher and Carli, for their support of me in this role these past many years. Lori and I have been in town since 1994 and I know you will agree, we were so fortunate to live and bring up our kids here.
As you have heard me say many times before, when towns across the land have a vision for their town, that vision is Westfield. Westfield will remain that vision if town leadership, like during my tenure, continue to put the town first and foremost and more importantly keep political correctness and partisan politics at the doorstep.
We need to look no further than Washington DC, where political correctness and partisan politics are rampant, to see that a swamp is no foundation for a good government. Again, I thank you all and I look forward to seeing you around town.
