To The Daily Sun,
The Town of Belmont is fortunate to have a number of candidates running for selectman this year and I believe two of them stand out over the rest and deserve our serious consideration.
Ron Cormier and Sonny Patten have separated themselves from the rest of the field by their dedication to serving Belmont and always trying to do the right thing for the town and the its citizens. I have interacted with both of them in their roles on town boards and my role as both a School Board member and a citizen and I have found them both to be professional at meetings and never interested in benefiting themselves or potential business interests. They invest the time needed to do the right thing to move Belmont forward. I have witnessed both of them sitting on boards where very serious issues were being addressed and they both took the responsibility very seriously. I consider them both to be men of honor and integrity.
Both of these men have lived in Belmont for a long time — Sonny for 37 years, and Ron was born and raised here. They have deep roots in our town. They want to do the right thing, have invested years of service to our town, and I believe they both deserve serious consideration for the honor of being elected to the Select Board. It will be a tough choice, but a win for Belmont if one of them is elected.
