To the Editor:
I write in support of Adam Dash for Selectman and hope that you will support him, too. I’ve heard Adam speak a couple of times about how he sees the role of Selectman and have been impressed on several levels.
- First, I am struck by his extensive experience on the Warrant Committee, the fiscal watchdog for the town. We need a selectman who has the facility with the town budget from Day One.
- Secondly, I am impressed by his recognition that Belmont needs to get moving on its Climate Action Plan, enacted in 2008 but without any pathway to implementing it. All over the country, action on climate change must now happen on the local level, now that we have an administration that is openly denying its existence.
- Finally, I like his ideas on local business and how to make Belmont more business-friendly through better-permitting processes, zoning, and working with surrounding neighbors.
As a practicing attorney in the field, Adam has extensive professional zoning experience and has served on the Belmont Zoning Board of Appeals. He also sees underused properties in town as opportunities and has the experience to help convert them into tax paying, successful businesses.
I encourage you to learn more about Adam at his website, electadamdash.com. He will serve Belmont well as our next Selectman.
