Support for John Ballantine

To the Editor:

I am pleased to support John Ballantine on his candidacy for a one-year seat as selectman. John has served tirelessly and with great tact and insight on a large variety of town activities over the past 12 years including the finance committee, personnel committee and Carlisle Communications, Inc., to name only a few. His desire and ability to be proactive, bring perspective and attention to detail, maintain an open mind, and effectively communicate will be a terrific asset for the wide range of challenges Carlisle faces in the near future. He displays an understanding of a broad range of constituent groups in Carlisle and maintains a keen interest in the needs of families with young and school age children. He is politically moderate and fiscally responsible and has saved the town money on various budget issues. These types of skills and knowledge will serve in the best interest of the town.

I extend an invitation to you to meet John on Wednesday May 6th at 9:15 a.m. at the home of Joan Dalton, 8 Bedford Road and hope you will give him your support on May 11.
