I would like to invite other town citizens to join me in supporting John Rizzo for the open position on the Board of Health.

John has shown a keen interest in the board’s activities and has attended recent meetings. While there, he has actively participated in the discussions taking place.

He is eminently qualified with his science background as a senior scientist in the quality assurance/quality control portion of the pharmaceutical industry. As such he has an understanding of how science interacts with everyday life.

John has lived in Harvard for six years with his wife and two teenage children. He is active in the community through coaching girls softball and as a mentor for the Bromfield InvenTeam. He sees the opportunity of serving on the board as a way to give back to the community which he has grown to love.

He believes in application of the regulations in a reasonable and fiscally responsible manner. Such an objective view is exactly what is needed on the board.

Again, I ask for your vote for John on May 1.
