LETTER: Degen: I Respectfully Ask For Your Support
Dear Citizens of Groton:
I would like to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Select Board. I am humbled to have served you as your Selectman for over 12 years. A lot of accomplishments have been achieved since I was first elected. There have been many successes along this curvy country road and a few shortcomings as well.
Groton is a growing community with new financial challenges facing us as a result of this growth. As a local Groton businessman for over 30 years I understand the concepts of the financial challenges for businesses to grow and thrive.
The Town unlike businesses count on revenues from its taxpayers to sustain its growth. We are facing ever growing challenges to meet to needs of our town, our Regional School District and our citizens.
I have the experience working collaboratively with my fellow board members. I am committed to serving as your Selectman for another three year term. I have a solid record of accomplishments. Having served our community for over 12 years most of you know my name, who I am and what I stand for. Therefore I am opting to limit the number road signs to major location around town.
I respectfully ask for your support but more importantly you vote on the ballot on May 21, 2019.
Selectman Town of Groton
