I have lived in Belmont & participated in Belmont life for 37 years

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I have lived in Belmont with my family for 37 years. My children and grandchildren have attended Belmont schools. I have operated a successful business here and have served as a member of the Planning Board for 26 years. I have also served on both Master Plan and Capital Improvement Committees.

I have assisted in the approval process for the Belmont Elderly Housing, Sandy Ledge, and Maple Hills housing projects. My participation was instrumental in the complete rewrite of the 1992 Zoning Ordinance as well as 65-plus commercial and residential development projects. Please vote Sonny Patten for Belmont selectman.

Sonny Patten
