MORE ON ELECTION: Letters submitted after deadline for Oct. 25 paper

(Continued)

In 2010 Jim Lyons was elected to replace L'Italien. While L'Italien always paid attention to our town, the same cannot be said of Lyons. Just this past summer, Tarr requested a meeting with the Boxford selectmen to discuss an issue relative to the salt study. Tarr, Hill and Lyons were in attendance. Before the meeting started, I watched as Rep. Lyons introduced himself to the members of the Board of Selectmen. After a year and a half in office, he had never met our town officials nor attended a selectmen's meeting. Ironically, at this same meeting the Selectmen recognized L'Italien for her important role working on this issue.

Due to redistricting, only residents of precinct 1 have the opportunity to vote for Barbara L'Italien. I hope that they will vote for her, as she has demonstrated that she will be an effective, responsive representative for all of Boxford.
