Acushnet resident Roger A. Cabral filed his Nomination Papers on 1/9 and announced that he will be a candidate for Acushnet Selectman in the Town election which will be held on Monday, April 3rd.
Mr. Cabral has been a resident of the Town of Acushnet since 1994 and has been an active member of the Acushnet community for the past 20 years. He has held leadership roles in the Acushnet Finance Committee, the Acushnet Parent-Teacher Organization, the Acushnet School Building Committee and ACTION among other local activities.
Mr. Cabral stated: “I would now like to serve this Town as a member of your Board of Selectmen and I am asking for your support. My past involvement in this community, particularly the 12 years that I spent as a member of the Finance Committee, including four as chairman, has given me some great insight into the resources and needs of this community.
“The Board of Selectmen in Acushnet exists to serve the residents of this community. There is no “THEY” that manages our Town. Acushnet Government is supposed to be “WE”.
Government in Acushnet is the result of all of us pooling our collective resources to pay for and provide services. The Board of Selectmen are entrusted to manage those resources on our behalf and to make decisions that are in the overall best interests of our Community.
“I love this Town and I tell people with pride that I live in Acushnet. We have a great Town with a proud history. I am confident for our future as well if we manage our resources carefully and make well considered decisions.
I hope that you will consider voting for me and will support my candidacy for Acushnet Selectman.”
