This letter is written by Lawrence Ouellette, Jr.:
I am writing this letter to voice my support for Tom Vicino. He is running for State Representative to serve the towns of Clinton, Killingworth and Westbrook.
Tom is a long-time Clinton resident. He has two sons attending the Clinton schools, owns and operates a long-standing business in Westbrook, currently serves as Chairman of the Clinton Economic Development Commission, and also as a second term Selectman.
In addition, he has serviced on the Board of Directors for the local Chamber of Commerce.
His work in public service over these many years has displayed a sincere commitment to economic development in the region in order to increase the commercial tax base so as to lessen the residential tax burden.
Finally, and of most importance, I would note that from my own participation on Clinton's Historic District Commission and Clinton's Conservation Commission, that Tom Vicino, in both his words and actions, has displayed a sincere, long-term dedication and support for preserving and protecting the historic and environmental resources of our area so as to ensure that the distinct character and heritage of our communities is preserved and not lost to any future development.
For all these reasons, I wholeheartedly support Tom Vicino for State Representative so that he may carry on with his commitment and hard work for the benefit of all three towns.
-- Lawrence Ouellette, Jr.
(Ouellette is chairman of the Clinton Historic District Commission and is chairman of the Clinton Conservation Commission)
