iForum: Girl Scouts Already Doing Great Things in the Community

We need leadership that will make sure that funding is made available to re-open our local school, not only for children but to help Cheshire grow.

Letter: Blackmer Will Be Dedicated, Passionate Public Servant

She has worked hard and effectively on the City Council and in Boston advocating for our region. She has balanced work and family, always in the service of others.

Letter: Blackmer Is the Public Servant We Need

Over the past decade, there is nobody who has delved further into the policies and practices of local governments than Lisa Blackmer.

Letter: Bosley Is a Community Builder

Being that Stephanie is my wife, most would assume that this is a foregone conclusion. However, the reasons that she is my wife should matter to each and every voter when they choose to vote on Oct. 10. I knew I would marry Stephanie from our first date and I assure you that is not a line, ask anyone who knows me and you'll find this has been the story since the moment Stephanie left after the date was over.

Letter: Blackmer Stands Above the Rest

One of Lisa's most impressive qualities is her ability to listen to others and research every issue the community deals with.

She does not seek the limelight, but seeks to make the right decisions.
