Firsthand witness to Nickerson's great work
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of Mark Nickerson, so that he may continue as East Lyme’s first selectman. It is often said that if you want to find a good doctor, ask the nurses who work with him at the hospital. I have recently retired as the executive assistant to the first selectman after serving in that capacity for 27 years. I worked for and served 7 first selectmen and I have seen the town grow and prosper as a result of the good efforts of my former bosses. I was very lucky to work for a tremendously dedicated group of individuals, all of whom did a good job. Some, like Paul Formica, were destined for higher office and he continues to work for the benefit of the East Lyme community as state senator.
I have never written a letter to the editor before, however, I want the townspeople to understand what a prince of an individual they have in Nickerson. He stands at the front of all that I have served and he is a dedicated, responsible caring public servant. He honestly cares about the townspeople and continues to direct our community in a positive direction. I know that experience counts. Join me in voting for Mark Nickerson.
