I am writing a letter of endorsement for Mark Parmelee for Ward 2 Town Council. I have known Mark, his wife Megan and their four children for 19 years. My family moved to Westfield in 2000, and the Parmelee family was one of the first families we met.

We became friends and have raised our combined 8 children together. Mark’s wife Megan and I ran the St Paul’s Day School parents organization together for 2 years and Mark was always at every event and beyond helpful.

At every stage of raising our families over the last 19 years, Mark has been involved, committed and completely trustworthy. Those are the exact characteristics Westfield should be looking for in a new councilman. I have zero doubt that Mark will surpass everyone’s expectations and assist our town in positive growth and change.
