Letter: Serving on Little Compton Council has been an honor

Posted

 

To the editor:

I was deeply honored to have been elected to the Town Council by the voters of Little Compton.  In the six months since I took office, I have enjoyed digging into the issues affecting our town, hearing from constituents and getting to know my colleagues in town government. Sadly, I am resigning from the council effective June 30 because I have accepted a job in Vermont.  

My Council seat will be assumed by Patrick McHugh, as the next-highest vote-getter rises to fill a vacated seat, as stipulated by section 406 of the town’s charter. Patrick is well-known for his hard work on the School Committee and the Recreation Committee. I have no doubt he will serve ably and thoughtfully.

I will soon move to Vermont part-time and begin work as senior vice president for strategic communications for the University of Vermont Health Network.  It is one of the most innovative health care systems in the country.  I have dedicated my career to improving the quality and affordability of health care, and working for the UVM Network is a unique opportunity to advance that mission.  While I am excited by this prospect, I am very sorry to have to leave the council.  

I would like to thank my fellow council members, town hall staff and the rest of the town’s employees and leadership for their very hard work and collegiality.  And I would like to say a special thank you to former council member Larry Anderson, who has been an excellent mentor over the past six months.  Lastly, but most importantly, a big thank you to voters of Little Compton, for the opportunity to serve you and our wonderful town.
