Saying goodbye – cartoonist moves on but...

The town has said goodbye to our colleague Tom Raftery, who moved to Cape Cod at the end of the summer. He came to Carlisle in 1976 and has given his all to this community – as Selectman, Planning Board member, Carlisle Elderly Housing Association member and more recently, Town Moderator.

Raftery has been the cartoonist for the Carlisle Mosquito since the early 1980s and the good news is that he will continue to submit cartoons to this newspaper on a weekly basis.

To honor our former Carlisle resident, we offer readers a look back at some of our favorite cartoons.
