Polls open 7am - 8pm
The quotes above from the 3 candidates for Selectmen give a pretty clear indication of what we can expect from each of them should they be elected. Please dig deeper and learn more about them for yourself. A good place to start is with the video of the League of Women Voters Candidates Night at which these words were spoken, Available Here. It's worth viewing the entire 30 minutes or so, however, here is where you'll find each of these quotes: Lea Anderson - 1:39:12, George Harris - 1:39:44, Mary Antes - 1:06:06
Vote Your Conscience, Not Your Friends
We all have a tendency to support our friends. Usually, this is a good thing, but when it comes to voting, it has led to problems. Wayland is a small town and we all have lots of friends from the schools, from our kids' sports teams, from the neighborhood, from church. As much as we might like these folks, our relationships with them are not reason enough to vote for them.
Before your auto-pilot kicks in and moves your hand over to the part of the ballot that has your friend's name, please stop for a moment and think - is this really the best person for this position? Is this the candidate who has demonstrated the qualifications, experience and desire to get onto this board and do the best job possible for all Waylanders, and not just a small circle? Because when it comes to voting, that is ALL that matters.
But you can still be friends....
