Philip and Nancy Mathews seek re-election as Precinct 3 Town Meeting Members

Nancy and I have been Town Meeting members for over 10 years. We began representing Precinct 9 before redistricting 10 years ago moved us to Precinct 10. Now we, and a good number of our Precinct 10 constituents, find ourselves in Precinct 3.

We have lived in Milton for nearly 30 years. We raised our two children here and watched them graduate from our public schools. The excellent preparation they received contributed to what they are doing today – psychological counseling (Ben) and working for Partners in Health in Haiti (Katharine). We both feel that it is impossible to over value public education.

In addition to serving in Town Meeting we collectively served for 10 years on the Warrant Committee, each of us co-chairing the School sub-committee. Nancy has been a President of Glover PTO and Chair of the Glover Site Council. For a number of years she served as President of the Milton League of Women Voters. I coached basketball in the town league and for 7 years I’ve published a blog about town issues.

Milton is special. Most of us have known that for a long time, and now many people around the country know it. What keeps us special is an active, engaged citizenry that serves on elected and appointed boards and committees, as well as at Town Meeting. We have studied issues of education, town finance and development in Milton for a number of years. We would like to continue to serve our old and new Precinct 3 neighbors.

We respectfully ask for two of your votes for Town Meeting on Tuesday, April 24th.
