Faced with three Select Board candidates who each have served on the town's diversity committee and made equity and inclusion a cornerstone of their respective campaigns, some town residents may have trouble picking just two when they go to the polls next Tuesday.
The Williamstown chapter of the League of Women Voters is hosting the forums for candidates running for two seats on the Select Board and one seat on the Planning Board. League member Jennifer Howlett will be the moderator.
He has deep roots in this town: his ancestors lived and worked here. He is committed to an approach based in kindness and inclusion. He is the candidate who can and will help us reach a new, inclusive and more equitable chapter in our town's history.
Fippinger has a long track record of building community partnerships, all grounded in deep, respectful outreach and relationship building and an abiding belief that all voices deserve a space, according to a Tuesday news release.
His vision of Williamstown emphasizes accountability in all financial and management aspects of governance; enhanced quality of life for elders and our youth; and more support for low-income families and people who wish to acquire homes affordably.
