Councilor thanks voters for support

The Haverhill Gazette

---- — To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has followed my campaign and supported me throughout my efforts for re-election to our City Council. I was blessed with the help and support of my family, friends and volunteers. Those of you who sacrificed your weekends to help me distribute literature, hold signs and get the word out on my candidacy — for that I am eternally grateful.

Additionally, I want to congratulate my fellow council candidates on running positive campaigns and allowing the voters to have a choice. They were all qualified candidates and I believe our city benefits from having so many willing to serve. It is a testament to the passion we all have for Haverhill and to continue to improve our quality of life here. Win or lose, they chose to run and gave it their best and it was an honor standing beside them throughout this process.

Over the past few months, I have had the opportunity to meet voters face to face, which has been both a privilege and a pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to discuss the issues with me, inform me of your concerns and offer suggestions to help improve the quality of life in our great city.

I will continue to be dedicated, sincere and honest throughout my appointment as a city councilor. I will put forth your best interests and continue to be engaged and informed. I truly understand the privilege and responsibility bestowed on me and thank you for the honor and pleasure of serving you.

I am so proud of our city and I hope to make you proud in your choice of me.

Thank you,

Colin LePage,

Haverhill city councilor
