It is good news that Sharon McCarthy has chosen to run for Board of Health. Sharon and I served together on the Town Center Sewer Policy Committee. This committee was charged with developing the policies that will guide the decisions of the Commissioners of the new Town Center Sewer District when the system becomes operational. Sharon brought her environmental expertise to our discussions and was able to clearly explain technical issues and positions that seemed conflicting or complex to the lay person. This experience makes her well suited for a position on the Board of Health.

I am voting for Sharon; I urge all Harvard residents to do the same.
