Van Liew Endorses Joyce As Second Choice
Selectman candidate Roland Van Liew offered praise for Planning Board member and fellow BoS candidate Bob Joyce in a mailer yesterday, asking voters to vote for him and Joyce.
The town election is just over one month away, and one of the candidates for the Board of Selectmen knows who will be getting his two votes on the ballot.
Candidate and local activist Roland Van Liew announced yesterday in an e-mail from the Bigger Not Better Chelmsford newsletter asked voters to support Planning Board member Bob Joyce along with himself for the April 2 town election.
In the letter, Van Liew praised Joyce on his economic views regarding town debt and tax relief.
Joyce was also the only member of the Planning Board to vote against the site plan for the 9 North Road property, an issue Van Liew has spoken on frequently in the past.
"I don’t always agree with him, but I appreciate that he tries to (utilize the evidence to) achieve the best options for the town," said Van Liew in a comment to Patch.
Joyce had no immediate comment on the endorsement and had not seen the letter indicating the endorsement as of early Wednesday evening.
