It is rare that a volunteer comes along who has the education, professional qualifications, experience and the willingness to serve our town. Sharon McCarthy is highly qualified in public health issues and should be on the Board of Health. She has served on the School Committee and other town positions, which also gives her the experience she needs for working with other town boards, committees and the public without a learning period. I cannot think of a better person to resolve the multitude of issues facing the Board of Health now and into the future.
