I am writing this to show support to Bob Prescott for his candidacy for Selectman in Shirley. I served with Bob on the Shirley School Committee, and know him to be an outstanding guy. Bob has a vast knowledge of local government processes and negotiations needed to get results. The approach taken by some who think a new face is actually a "job trainee" is not only insulting to all candidates seeking election, but seems to me to be an attitude that only shows how much we do need change.

Promises made in the past have not been followed through. It is time for Shirley to take a stand to change how things are done and actually vote in a candidate that WILL work hard to see things through for the good of ALL of us. I know Bob Prescott to be reasonable, approachable, and realistic. He is a great guy and I hope you vote for him as well.
