A vote of confidence

Marlborough – When Fidelity Investments left the city of Marlborough in 2011, it was a huge blow to the local economy, rippling down to many of the smaller businesses in the city. But over the past six years, the city has seen a resurgence, attracting large companies such as TJX, Quest Diagnostics, and GE Healthcare, as well as the new large-scale multi-use development, Apex Center. The force behind much of the city’s growth can certainly be attributed to its chief executive officer, Arthur Vigeant, who has made economic development a top priority.

Religious leaders unite in support of child immigrants

As leaders of diverse faith communities we are writing with one voice that transcends all the differences in our theologies and personal opinions. When President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, this action crushed the dreams of nearly a million young people covered by the executive order. These young people, brought to the United States by their parents, have done everything our government has asked of them.

League of Women voters invite public to presentation on Ranked Choice Voting

A winning merger has taken place: the League of Women Voters chapters of Shrewsbury and Grafton are now one! I think most residents in both towns have heard of the LWV and may believe most towns of our size have a chapter. Not so. In fact, in all of central Massachusetts, this is one of only three chapters. In learning about the local League’s history, I recognize the thanks we owe the founding women and the current members (men included!) who continue to fulfill its non-partisan mission. A piece of that mission is to bring important national and state issues to public attention.

Thank you from Spirit of Shrewsbury Festival Committee
