It is always good to see a candidate that is not afraid of a debate, hard work or making a tough decision. Peter Nystrom has earned an exemplary reputation in all these areas leading us to believe our support is best placed with him. Nystrom possesses a keen awareness of both the long- and short-term needs of Norwich for balanced and sustainable development. He has pushed tirelessly to fill the commercial space in Norwich as a whole, not just downtown, in order to alleviate the burden on taxpayers. Please remember driving by the Norwichtown Mall, now the Norwichtown Commons. That didn't happen without his help, said the owners. What we now have is a better looking center. It is always busy.
Nystrom is a committed and community oriented individual. He listens to all sides of a debate and uses all information to make a decision for the long- term benefit of Norwich. Nystrom is the rare individual who has the skills to lead, the passion for service and the personality to get things done. I encourage you to join us in casting your vote for Peter Nystrom on Nov. 5.
