Congratulations to Jannice Livingston on your election to our Ayer Board of Selectmen.

Many thank-yous to the people who encouraged me, supported my candidacy for re-election and expressed your confidence in me with your votes.

I say I have never had an opponent in an election campaign -- only partners in the democratic process in giving the voters a choice. I am pleased to have been a partner in that process again, and especially grateful for the years of stewardship of Ayer's interests our voters have entrusted to me.

Ayer is blessed with an abundance of people who care passionately for our town and community. We will never lack for volunteers to compete for the honor of managing our municipal affairs.
