Groton Democratic-controlled council has achieved much

In the past two years, under Democratic leadership, the Groton Town Council has accomplished a lot. They have built a long-promised bike path on Thomas Road, established the first ever ethics commission for the town, implemented a sustainability task force to address climate issues, started researching a plastic reduction ordinance, increased the rainy-day fund, encouraged reuse of empty storefronts and old schools and created more open space.

They should all be commended for these accomplishments, but I think Mayor Patrice Granatosky deserves special mention. I have approached her about various issues during her term. She responds quickly, listens to the problem, takes action, and then follows up. I think it’s great to have someone who seems like a small town mayor in a town as big as Groton. I hope she will win re-election easily because of her commitment and competence.
