I’m thrilled to be serving Westford for another term.  I’m ready to work with all of our town functions as we face the continuing health and budget challenges related to Covid-19, and am looking forward to continuing to focus on safety, wellness, diversity and equity through the Select Board and the Town and School Safety and Wellness Task Force.–TOM CLAY, won his second three-year term to the Select Board.

I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve as a member of School Committee for another term.  We have numerous challenges ahead with both COVID-19 and the potential loss of local revenue and state aid.  But Westford always finds a way forward together and I am committed to continuing the hard work needed to find positive solutions on behalf of our students.

Thank you to the voters for entrusting me to help navigate these uncertain times.  My top priorities will be reopening schools safely, supporting our administration, teachers, and students during this public health crisis, and making needed improvements to the school budget process. Westford Public Schools greatly benefited my children and now I can pay it forward to my community by continuing to serve our schools and town.–Gloria Miller, won her second three-year term to the School Committee.
