Letters to the editor

(Continued)

He chose Haverhill as his home over 16 years ago and I share that same pride as when I moved here over 50 years ago. The city needs progressive thinkers to keep improving our quality of life and delivery of services. With Colin’s hard work, his attention to detail while asking questions and also offering potential solutions – such as the wonderful curbside recycling program that we now have – he has earned my vote and I wholeheartedly recommend that you vote for him as well.

I hope that you will join me in voting to re-elect Colin LePage to the City Council on Nov. 5.

Haverhill needs LePage

To the editor:

As election time draws near, Haverhill voters are faced with some choices in the upcoming City Council election.

As I look at the field, I always try to find the people who will do the right thing for Haverhill in both the short term and the long term. As a voter, Colin LePage stands out to me as one of those candidates.

I have known Colin for over 10 years. I have worked with him as a member of the Board of Directors for the Riverside-Bradford Baseball League. His work ethic and attention to detail in a volunteer role are one of his many strong points. Working in a volunteer organization for a youth sport can sometimes be a thankless task. Colin is the type of person who could negotiate with multiple stakeholders and work a problem to an agreed-upon solution. To me, this is a great characteristic in a city councilor.

His passion for this work is another great characteristic of Colin. He is still a very active leader of this organization and has been for over 10 years.

In his role as a city councilor, I have observed Colin work through and implement a citywide curbside recycling program for residents. At first, the program was not well received. However, through the hard work of people like Colin, the program has blossomed and works to not only save the city money, but also works to protect the environment for future generations.
