Weber for Shrewsbury Select Board


Letter to the Editor iconOn May 2nd, Shrewsbury has a clear choice. On the one hand, there’s the status-quo of incumbents and all-too-familiar names – good people, trying their best, doing things the way they’ve always been done. On the other hand, there’s a bright new face with a 20-year track record of navigating the delicate balance between strategic vision and day-to-day practical leadership.  With the former, you know what you’re going to get: a dense apartment complex disguised as Town Center mixed-use, and a knee-jerk land acquisition in place of a coherent open-space strategy. With the latter, you’ll get a candidate who will challenge her colleagues to move beyond conventional thinking and face the future with a fresh outlook. You’ll get a Select Board Member who will engage in order to listen – truly listen, rather than speak. 

Shrewsbury, we don’t need more of the same. We need a new approach, fueled by a new perspective and fresh energy. We need engaged, active listening. We need sincere empathy, tempered with seasoned, hands-dirty life experience. Shrewsbury has a choice, and that’s why I’m choosing Siobhan Costello-Weber on Tuesday May 2nd.
