Dave Desroches today announced on January 17 his candidacy for the Acushnet Board of Selectmen.
“I’m proud of Acushnet,” said Dave. “I grew up here and want to give back by serving the town and my fellow residents.”
A professional photographer, Dave has deep roots in Acushnet. He went to St. Francis Grammar School, played Little League baseball at Pope Park and, like other Acushnet children, attended Saint Anthony High School in New Bedford.
“I’m running for Selectman because I’m concerned about the fiscal challenges our town is facing. Pensions/Other Post-Employment Benefits, Waste Management and a need for new business ventures are problems that will require tough decisions. I believe the town has not gone far enough in its approach to these difficult situations. We need to be proactive, not reactive, to keep taxes stable.”
“As we enter the New Year, I am thinking ahead to Acushnet’s future,” Dave said. “What course are we taking for the town and our residents as we progress through the twenty first century? As I roll out my vision and proposals for Acushnet in the coming weeks, I look forward to hearing from residents about their thoughts and concerns.”
