A letter from Danvers Selectman Gardner Trask.
Wednesday, May 2, 2012
I want to thank the residents of Danvers for their support in the Town Election. I appreciate every one of the voters who came out on a raw, grey day to vote for the leadership of the town. It was a good campaign with well-intentioned people on all races. I thank Mr. Bettencourt for his involvement and hope he continues his passion for public service. Over the campaign we got to speak on several occasions and he has s strong background. With openings on several committees I hope he can pitch in before his next election bid, if that is his desire. To Mr. Clark, it is always a pleasure, and I enjoy our discussions, and the history lessons, while campaigning. To the voters of Danvers, thank you. -Gardner Trask
