I am writing in support of Joe Pato for selectman, and of Scott Bokun for School Committee. As a longtime friend and Town Meeting colleague, I’ve always been impressed by Joe’s analytical approach to every problem, and his innate ability to bring a calm and considered perspective to even the most contentious issue the town faces. It is important to maintain his extensive experience on the board so that he can continue to champion initiatives that build and better our community. Joe is committed to addressing our pressing capital needs, continuing to make progress on our sustainability goals, assure public safety and continue to make Lexington welcoming and inclusive. Joe’s love of Lexington is apparent in his many years of service and his deep commitment to listening to and providing for all citizens.
Similarly, Scott Bokun would be an exceptional addition to the School Committee. His experience as an educator and his years of leadership of the Lexington Youth Summer Theater demonstrate his passion and commitment to furthering our children’s growth and development. His years of service as a Town Meeting member have given him a deep understanding of the town’s budget and array of needs, and he carefully and prudently considers both the value and financial impacts of an issue while representing his constituents.
As a longtime friend of Scott’s, I know he would hold the best interests of our children and our town in mind as a Lexington School Committee member. Please join me in voting for Joe Pato for selectman and Scott Bokun for School Committee on March 4.
