To the editor:
I don’t know the best way to do this and wonder if a letter to the editor is the appropriate forum. If not, perhaps you can suggest something else. Here is what I want to say:
Dear Precinct Four voters,
My name will be on the ballot in April for Town Meeting member. Due to recent illness in my family, I will be unavailable to attend town meeting. Please vote for another candidate. I hope to have the opportunity to serve on Town Meeting another year.
Wayne Mesard says
@Christine, I’m so sorry to hear that your family is going through a tough time; and I applaud you for doing the right thing regarding this election.
One suggestion: Perhaps you would be willing to endorse some of the other candidates? Encouraging people to vote *for* someone is always more effective.
