To the people of Grafton please take note of Bruce Spinney for selectman.
I have spoken with Bruce several times, I find him real - he's a dad of three kids, husband of a supportive wife, lives in town, has been involved with many different boards and volunteer positions.
It is obvious he loves the town of Grafton.
He is a new face with some new ideas, mesh this with some old ideas and we have a plan.
When you're the incumbent, it is easy to know the right topics and what sections of town to prioritize them.
The other night I listened as a great idea was presented to five town residents by the incumbent, I asked myself why now -- why not seven or eight months ago....oh yeah, election year. I also listened and wonder why he never spoke to these folks before about this there always in the town hall -- yep election. The incumbent has done some nice things as he has written in his campaign ad:
- He also was a great supporter of the Mega Library.
- He likes to spend.
I refer to some of our leaders as flags, they wave in the wind -- never publicly committing to anything -- if you speak to them privately they will say they are on your side till the next person comes along then they're on their side...
I ask Bruce if he would stand by what he said taking into account the wants and needs of the majority of the towns people -- he said yes. OK maybe it is the election speaking but he doesn't have a history of it, which makes me say yep, lets see what the new guy will bring to the table.
He is extremely worried about the taxes in town. Bruce has strong ideas about how to spend or not spend our tax dollars.
Bruce is an independent thinker -- he is his own man.
I am asking you all to vote for Bruce Spinney, mostly vote, the town needs some fresh ideas - "really aren't we tired of the rolling eyes and gestures from the guy on far right!"
