LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote Carmen Christiano for Library Trustee
A letter from Carmen Christiano.
Dear Chelmsford Voter:
I am a candidate for re-election as one of the Chelmsford Library Trustees in the April 3rd townwide election.
If re-elected, I will do my best to insure that the Chelmsford Library remains the first class facility that it has always been...and I will work very hard to improve it in any way that I can.
During my first term as a Library Trustee I have attended and participated fully in every Trustee meeting. I was selected by the other Trustees to be their representative on the Town's Capital Planning Committee, and I attended & contributed to every one of those meetings as well. I helped out at the Friends of the Library booth during our 4th of July celebrations and I again volunteered at their very successful book sale in the fall. I also help publicize all of the Chelmsford Library events in the many public venues & publications that I produce or manage.
I believe that my educational and business background has proven to be very helpful as I performed the duties of a Library Trustee. During my 24 year professional career at Hanscom Air Force Base & elsewhere I have negotiated and financially analyzed hundreds of high dollar contracts -- many with multi-million dollar values. I have also earned a BA Degree at Sacred Heart University and an MBA degree from the University of New Haven. I have also taught graduate college degree MBA courses in Contract Pricing, Financial Analysis, and Negotiation Techniques for many years. I have also been a Certified Professional Contract Manager (CPCM).
I have served as an elected Chelmsford Town Meeting Representative for eighteen years thus far (I am up for re-election again this year, in Precinct 9, and would appreciate one of your votes). I attended every one of our Town Meetings during those eighteen years as a Town Meeting Rep, which indicates the seriousness & diligence with which I take my public service responsibilities. I will continue to be as conscientious and hard working if I am fortunate enough, with your help, to be re-elected to the Chelmsford Board of Library Trustees.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter about my candidacy. Please consider giving me one of your votes for Library Trustee -- and Town Meeting Rep Precinct 9 -- on election day.
Carmen Thomas Christiano
