Thank you for your support.
Yesterday, Groton’s voters presented me with such a huge honor, and this morning I was sworn in by our Town Clerk. For me, this was a wonderful full-circle – several years ago Mr. Bouchard assisted me by having a conversation about how I could get more involved in our local government.
Thank you to my wife, Muffy, and our two kids, Bunny & Carter, for their support and encouragement. They were awesome from the beginning, amazingly patient throughout, and solidly there by my side over the past few days.
I am both grateful and humbled by the number of people in our community who reached out and gave their time (and space on their lawns) over the past few months to make this possible. There were several individuals who gave their energy and expertise beyond any possible expectations, including some herculean efforts on Election Day.
Thank you to all of the candidates who ran for any elected seat. It is imperative that we recognize and appreciate them. I know what an effort this is, and what sacrifices you make. We are tremendously lucky to have so many volunteers who imbue our local democracy with such vitality.
My campaign for a seat on Groton’s Board of Selectmen benefited from so many passionate and involved individuals who make up the very fabric of our community. It will be my honor to repay that respect in service to our town during my 3-year term on Groton’s Board of Selectmen.
It is an honor to be chosen by the people of Groton. Thank you for providing me with an opportunity to represent you as a member of the Board of Selectmen. I will serve our community with honor, transparency, fearless dedication and respect for the public’s good.
Please note that all correspondence related to my role as a member of the board of Selectmen must be done using my official town e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and best regards,
Barry A. Pease
P.S. Many signs have already been collected and I plan to collect more after tonight’s meetings. If you still have a sign on your lawn after tomorrow morning, please contact me so that I can retrieve it. And thank you once again for being willing to show your support so publicly.
