Letter: Thanks, Ward 4 voters
My thanks to the residents of Ward 4 for selecting me to represent them on the Concord City Council. I will do my best to justify the trust they have placed in me.
Let me also thank Kevin Bloom and Michael DelloIacono for running issues-based campaigns that focused on the interests of our ward and our city. I think the public was well-served by having a choice in this election.
I enjoyed getting to know Bloom, and I hope to continue to work with DelloIacono on projects that benefit Concord.
During the campaign, I went door-to-door, neighborhood-by-neighborhood to meet my neighbors and hear their concerns. I was gratified to hear that many of you share my vision of Concord as a vibrant, livable small city.
I took note of the issues that are important to you, and I’ll do my best to be your voice on city council.
Over the next two years, I hope you will feel free to reach out to me (as some of you already have!) with your ideas and concerns. I may not always agree with you, but I will always listen and weigh what you have to say when making decisions.
Finally, let me thank the enthusiastic volunteers who supported my campaign, the residents who displayed my signs on their lawns and my family and colleagues who encouraged me to run. I’m looking forward to the next two years!
BYRON O. CHAMPLIN
