To the editor:
Last week I had to decide whether to vote at college in Pennsylvania or right here at home in Lakeville. My decision was easy. I’ve come to love this community and know that if we elect good leadership, our town can flourish amidst the most difficult times. That is why my vote for Mayor is .
Matt is a dedicated City Council Member who I’ve come to greatly admire and respect. I first met Matt because he spent his Saturdays waking up early and devoting his day to helping students, like myself, learn the valuable lessons of debate. The determination to give back to debate is revealing of Matt’s character. He is a servant leader, one who devotes his time and passion to causes that better our community like debate, education and the safety of our residents.
I got to know Matt much better when we both became involved in the budget cuts faced. Matt was an innovative thinker and a strong advocate as we pushed for a solution that preserved our after-school programs. I know that Matt’s leadership will yield fresh, creative, grounded ideas that will move Lakeville in the right direction.
Matt Little has inspired me to stay involved and give back to Lakeville. With his dedication to our community and his inclusion of younger people, like myself, Matt is the candidate I will be supporting for Mayor.
