I say congratulations!

As one who is proud to serve Ayer on the Board of Selectmen, I would like to thank all our participants in this year's demonstration of American democracy in action.

This includes of course the voters of Ayer, who because of those who ran for public office were engaged in the civic process and have shown renewed enthusiasm for our democratic process.

This year's voter turnout was one of the highest in recent years.

As a former colleague of mine once said, there are no losers in the democratic process -- only proud participants.

Thank you all for fulfilling your responsibilities in our democratic form of government; for without each of us doing our part, the system fails.



Ayer Board of Selectmen
