At its meeting on 1/17/23, the Fairhaven Select Board chose four photos for the 2022 Annual Town Report. Select Board members chose from 28 photos by 10 different photographers, who were all residents of town employees.
Board members made three top choices and staff tallied the results. Four photographs made the final cut, and the board discussed those and chose the top vote-getter at the meeting for the front cover.
Vice Chair Leon Correy, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Stasia Powers, said the “leading vote was 15,” and only one photo got that many.
The photo is an aerial shot of Hoppy’s Landing by photographer Gary Moujabber.
The board also discussed the layout of the cover, with Town Administrator Angie Lopes Ellison showing a few previous reports, including some that used more than one photo.
One option was to use the aerial photo for the front cover, and use the other three on the back cover.
“That would make this a lot easier,” said Ms. Ellison.
“Yes it would,” said Mr. Correy. “Works for me.”
The board voted unanimously to use Mr. Moujabber’s photo on the cover; a photo of Fort Phoenix by Fairhaven TV/Cable Access, a beach path by Suzanne Vieira, and the Fairhaven skyline from the harbor by Sue Meadows on the back.
