I am writing in support of Joe Pato for Selectman, and Scott Bokun for School Committee. I have had the pleasure of knowing both of these gentlemen for many years and can honestly say that I cannot think of better individuals for these two positions. Joe brings a wealth of experience to the Selectmen and his calm, fact-based, integrative approach to decision-making make him an extremely valuable individual to have as a Selectman. I am thrilled that he has chosen to continue to serve our community in this way.
While Scott will be new to the School Committee, he likewise brings to this role a wealth of experience in voluntary leadership roles. Additionally, Scott brings an unparalleled level of enthusiasm and passion for the initiatives with which he chooses to be involved. Having raised with his wife Michelle two wonderful daughters who both benefited tremendously from the Lexington school system and having been a teacher of young children for many years, Scott’s experience and passion for the quality of education that we provide here in Lexington make him extremely well qualified to be on our School Committee.
Please join me in voting for Joe Pato for Selectman and Scott Bokun for School Committee on March 4.
