Please join me in supporting Scott Hazelton for Westford Board of Selectmen with your vote on Tuesday, May 3rd.

Scott stepped forward to defend and protect our constitutional rights as citizens three years ago. Since that time, he has conducted himself in openness and transparency. Scott explains each issue with clarity and works collegially to find the right solution for Westford. The right solution respects Town Meeting decisions and never compromises our rights.

Scott cares about the town and all its residents. From addressing the needs of the disabled, to housing to health and public safety, he continues to seek and promote improvements to the community’s benefit. During his first term, Scott secured lower electricity rates for everyone, opened housing for veterans and helped to establish community gardens. With your continued support, Scott will expand fire and ambulance response time for all sections of Town.

Most importantly, Scott has overseen these improvements in a fiscally responsible manner. He has achieved balance budgets, targeted capital improvements and preserved the Town’s top bond rating. Balancing property taxes with excellent schools and services is his immediate goal.

Scott Hazelton has made a difference in his first term on the Board of Selectmen. A second term will allow even greater improvements. I support Scott and encourage you to vote for him on May 3rd.
