Please Vote Dan Dunn for Town Meeting

Dear Voters,

I’m running for re-election to Town Meeting from Precinct 21. I’m asking for your vote on Saturday. If you don’t live in Precinct 21, but you know someone who does, please let them know that I’m on the ballot. (precinct map)

I moved to Arlington ten years ago. Last fall I bought a house on Alpine Street and moved across town. I’ve been in Town Meeting for 7 years and a member of the Finance Committee for four years. I’ve been a volunteer on other town committees, including the Municipal Power study group, the Information Technology Advisory Committee, and a few others.

I’m a good person to have in Town Meeting. I do my homework beforehand, visiting neighborhoods for zoning articles, reading background materials for bylaw changes, and I spend dozens of hours with the Finance Committee reviewing the budget. I speak at town meeting when I have a point relevant to the debate; I don’t speak just to hear my own voice.

After every meeting, I write up notes about what happened at town meeting and publish them on my blog. A few hundred people read these notes on the following day. I provide a level of detail and context that is not available from any other source.

I’m new to Precinct 21, but I’m not new to Arlington. Please vote for me on Saturday – and please ask your friends to vote for me as well.


Dan Dunn

Damn. And by only 10 votes, in a really poor turnout.
