‘I would very much like to continue to serve as your Moderator’


Letter to the Editor logoTo the Editor,

My name is Fred George, and I am running for re-election as Northborough’s Town Moderator. I am running because I have a successful track record of conducting Town Meetings and appointing dedicated and qualified citizens to committees and boards as openings become available. I take the role of Moderator very seriously and have worked to gain more knowledge by interacting with Moderators from other municipalities throughout the Commonwealth while serving as President of the Massachusetts Moderators Association.  

I have had the pleasure of serving as Town Moderator since 2003.  It has been a wonderful experience as I have had the opportunity to meet and interact with many Northborough residents. The experience I have gained as Moderator has helped me to be prepared for situations that may occur in the Town Meetings.  Each meeting is different and requires coordination with the Board of Selectmen, the Town Clerk, and the Town Administrator.  A smooth meeting with a regular cadence is always the goal.

My education includes a bachelor’s degree in political science and psychology and a master’s degree in education, both from Alfred University (Alfred, NY).  I have held management positions, at the corporate level, in Human Resources and Administration, and Finance Management.

I have lived in Northborough for over forty years.  My wife, Virginia, and I have a grown son who is a product of the Northborough schools.  I have been involved in fundraising efforts for many worthy causes in the community and have volunteered on efforts for celebrations and events to help bring the community closer together.  

Today, the Town of Northborough is going through a leadership transition.  The board of Selectmen is a good group, but the team is new.  There will be a new Town Administrator soon.  The leadership of the town will be in a learning curve.  As Moderator, I have the experience, knowledge, and integrity to provide support to the leadership team of the town.

I would very much like to continue to serve as your Moderator and I ask for your vote Tuesday, May 9, 2023.

Fred George
