Leslie Rutan is the Right Choice for Northborough Selectman


Letter to the Editor logoLeslie Rutan has been a very effective and steadying force on our Board of Selectmen, and I highly endorse her for re-election. While our town has many challenges ahead, it’s important to also take stock of the accomplishments that Leslie has helped produce during her tenure on the board.  Northborough has an extremely strong financial position, excellent school systems benefiting from continual capital improvements, well-staffed police and fire departments, and a terrific DPW organization managing our roads and properties. Going forward, Leslie is committed to greater transparency and communication to hear citizens’ concerns, to balancing economic development with addressing the effects of traffic that comes as a result of growth, and to working through our Master Plan Implementation Committee to create an enhanced downtown that works better for pedestrians as well as businesses. 

This is the time when we need all of our town boards to work together toward these common goals, and Leslie has the leadership qualities and experience to make that happen.  Leslie brings a genuineness to every interaction with fellow board members and citizens which conveys a sense of trust that she sees your point of view and will follow up to get results.  With the challenges we have before us, we need to continue with what’s good and what works.  Leslie Rutan is very good for Northborough and we need her working for us on the BOS.
