Dear Groton Voters, Many of you know that I have a son at our high school that will be graduating with the class of 2023. For this reason, I have chosen to step down from the Groton-Dunstable School Committee and not run for re-election. I will take this year to enjoy this time with my son.  As I...
At the May 24th Election, voters will be asked to take the final step in the process to change the position of Town Clerk from elected to appointed. This change was endorsed at last fall’s Town Meeting and has been approved by the Massachusetts Legislature.     The Select Board unanimously...
The past few years have seen swastikas spray painted onto Groton’s public streets, sheds, and fire towers, drawn on the walls of our school bathrooms, and gouged into our trees. Town officials have repeatedly affirmed that this hatred does not represent who we are as a town, but such assurances...
Three years ago, John Reilly, a candidate for the Groton Select Board, ran on a platform to bring “Common Sense” to town politics—starting with the Select Board. Fast Forward; to that end, John has consistently lived up to his campaign promise. Recently, there were events that were most...
Turtle Trekking Time! From now until October, turtles will be moving, with earnest, to nesting sites and habitats for food and shelter. Mid-May to mid-June, females travel great distances to lay their eggs, often the same location and date annually. These sunny, sandy nesting sites are on...

As residents of Groton for 43 years, we have seen and admired several elected officials that stood out in a variety of ways and performance. One of them is Josh Degen. After serving, learning, and growing with the position of Select Board member for 6 terms, we are so pleased he has chosen to run...
There are many reasons why I endorse Josh Degen for re-election to the Groton Select Board, but the main one for me is – you know where he stands! Too often with local politics, candidates support general ideas (cut taxes) with bland promises (I’ll always be there for you) and don’t say exactly...
The Select Board has called for the Annual Town Meeting to be held Saturday, April 30, at 9 a.m., in the Middle School auditorium. The Town Meeting warrant was mailed to every household. Voters should review it carefully and bring it to Town Meeting.      Issued by the Select Board per state...
I attended the Tuesday meeting on March 29th to hear and see proof of whether it was seriously important to change our town seal. I sat there listening to both sides, willing to consider each argument. However, as I listened, I discovered there really was no concerning reason as to why we need to...
