Dear friends,

Thank you, South Hadley! I am honored to be re-elected to the Selectboard, and am delighted that Andrea Miles will be joining us on the Board as well!
This has been an exciting election season. I congratulate those candidates who won, and also those who ran and didn’t win this time (I’ve been there). Our democracy depends on those conversations that we have when there’s a contested election, and it makes all of us work even harder. I hope that everyone who ran and didn’t get elected will stay involved — there are tons of appointed boards and committees that need new members! — and even run again. We do this election thing every year!
Again, thank you for your confidence and your support. Please continue to stay involved and stay in touch — we need to hear from you to do our jobs well.

With thanks,
