Many of you may not know much about Pat Maloney who is one of the candidates for Chelmsford Selectman. I have had the pleasure of working with Pat for many years, first on the Finance Committee and, for the past three years as a Selectman. Pat has been working behind the scenes on behalf of the Chelmsford taxpayers for the past 13 years on the Permanent Building Committee. As a successful businessman involved in the construction industry Pat volunteered his time and expertise to make certain that all of the major building projects approved by the voters and Town Meeting Reps were completed on time and within budget. He wanted to make sure your tax dollars were used wisely. Pat has been extremely successful and has gone the extra mile to save taxpayer funds. When the $31,000,000 school project was passed by the voters, there was no one who anticipated that Chelmsford could get state aid to help fund the project since the state had a moratorium on all such projects. Pat went down to Boston and advocated on our behalf and got Chelmsford over $16,000,000 of state aid which saved your hard earned tax dollars. That project is now considered a model for other communities with respect to school projects. Pat is not only concerned with your taxes but has a proven track record of performing for the town. His commonsense approach and knowledge of how our town works is unique among the candidates. More importantly, Pat is an honest and trustworthy person whose word is his bond.
I can think of no one who would better serve our town to replace me on
the Board of Selectmen and I hope that you will consider casting one of your
two votes for Pat Maloney on April 2.
