Gallagher Supports Correy, Integrity
Fairhaven has many choices this election. There is a good mixture of experienced hands and new faces on the April 4th ballot. Like so many of you, I will be using my own judgement and applying my own set of qualifiers when I cast my ballot.
One of my three votes for Select Board will be cast for Leon Correy. During the recent recall election, I expressed my support for Leon in this newspaper. Back then he was a new commodity, a person full of promise, commitment to the town and, most importantly, a leader willing to step out in front of the pack well before the recall was started.
Since then my admiration for Leon Correy and his family has only increased. We have seen his dedication to Fairhaven grow, his grasp of the issues deepen and his focus on serving intensify. As I said back then, Leon possess the qualities that I personally look for in a public servant. I know he would be a tremendous addition to the newly comprised five-member Select Board.
Someone famously said “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
Fairhaven has the opportunity in a few days to place residents in elected positions that we know will honor this basic concept. Many of these candidates want to serve the interest of their community versus their own individual interests. Others, we need to watch. For Fairhaven to move forward and confidently, efficiently and effectively solve our most pressing issues, we need people to serve that understand that integrity is a way of life, not simply a campaign slogan.
I will be, once again, proud to vote for Leon Correy and the other candidates that understand the importance and true meaning of integrity.
Kevin Gallagher, Fairhaven
