Contested elections are never easy. The good news is that they are always resolved and, with any luck, everything turns out for the better. This year we re-elected a Selectman and two School Committee representatives, and brought on a new member to the School Committee, all in contested elections. As a community we learned a lot along the way, and now it is time to say that it was all worth the effort, and to put that knowledge to work.
It is also time to recognize the help, the challenge, and the opportunity that elections bring out. Please join me from 6:15 to 7:30 at the Tavern at the Groton Country Club on Tuesday June 9th to celebrate the election, what it taught us, and where we want to go.
Nothing fancy. Just a chance to say “Hi;” Thank you,” and to offer a thought or two about the years ahead.
