Tejasinha Sivalingam's commitment to understanding issues is obvious

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

On Ashland town voting day, I will be writing in Tejasinha Sivalingam for one of the three year Board of Selectman positions.

I have had the pleasure to work with Sivalingam several times when he previously served on the Board of Selectman and acted as the liaison to the Ashland Electric Commission. He was always respectful, often times in the face of mistreatment from other members of the Board of Selectman; he was always very prepared. I have often said people will not agree on every issue but let us respect those differences and respect one another. Let all of us recognize that we do not serve an ideology or a political party; we serve the people. Sivalingam's commitment to understanding issues was apparent, as was his commitment to finding solutions.

I believe Tejasinha Sivalingam is sincerely motivated by an interest in serving the people of Ashland. It is without reservation that I express my full support and confidence in Sivalingam as he campaigns as a write-in for the three-year Ashland Board of Selectman position.
