Correy Brings People Together
I would like to submit this letter of support for Leon Correy for Select Board. Last year I was telephoned by Mr. Correy, and had a very pleasant conversation about our community. We discussed the many issues the Town was facing at that time and I did explain to him my feelings toward those issues. I spoke of my experiences as a past Select Board member and the many complex parts of the job. I explained what this Town means to me, and how it was important to bring people together.
Mr. Correy spoke of his involvement within the community and his views about bringing people together. Keep in mind to this point I had not met this gentleman, we were speaking together for the first time. He spoke of his family, his education and his willingness to make a difference. Everything he said to me in that phone call, he has demonstrated already.
Last June when we all experienced the refusal by Selectmen to fly our LGBTQI Pride flag, during Pride month, people came together thanks to Ms. Hahn, and gathered in front of Town Hall. Mr. Correy, Cam Durant and Charlie Murphy were there. Mr. Correy spoke, and it was the first time I actually met him. Mr. Correy stood tall that day in my mind, and we all could feel the compassion he has for inclusion and diversity.
He went on to chair the Belonging Committee, and is a member on the Sustainability Committee. Mr. Correy has already made a difference in our Town government, he is motivated, ambitious, kind and respectful. He cares about me and he cares about you! He doesn’t have to promise to bring people together, he already has and will continue once elected.
I have always believed, that you will only have good government by electing good people. Please join me in voting for Leon Correy, he will continue to make a real difference for all of us.
Ronnie Manzone, Fairhaven
