Elections are important and have consequences. Watching and participating in selectmen’s meetings in Mashpee has been an education for me on the difficult and essential role a selectman has in the successes or failures in the Town of Mashpee.

Complex issues need intelligent and dedicated people to solve them. They also need decision makers who can work with a variety of individuals toward a common goal.

David Weeden has these qualities and more. This is why I support David Weeden to fill the vacancy of another dedicated individual who worked to improve Mashpee.

I have had the pleasure of working with David on several historical projects and have found him to be passionate about Mashpee’s future as well as its past. He is always prepared with information during a meeting and has excellent problem-solving skills. He is easy to work with and takes his time to really listen to others in a meeting. Thus, I believe he will be an excellent addition to the board of selectmen as they take on solving the challenges of Mashpee’s future.
