A Thoughtful and Collaborative Leader Who Listens

I first encountered Dan Dunn through his Town Meeting blog, which beautifully illustrates why Dan is such an asset to Arlington and why I am enthusiastically voting for him for Selectman. In the blog, Dan provides a succinct, objective, and thorough account of what happens at Town Meeting, while also clearly explaining his own thoughtful positions. The blog mirrors Dan’s approach to everything he does: he listens carefully, pays close attention to the issues, and develops his own opinions, then works hard to come up with effective, well-grounded solutions to problems and challenges.

What does this mean practically? It means that Dan has played an essential role in creating a workable budget for Arlington that is helping us achieve our goals without draining our coffers. He helped craft a flexible and responsive funding plan to meet education needs. He has brought his considerable professional expertise to the task of moving Arlington forward technologically. He collaborates respectfully and effectively with colleagues, on the Board of Selectmen, School Committee, the Finance Committee, and other town bodies.

Not only that, he’s a warm, likeable, funny, and a fantastic ambassador for Arlington. I am proud to support Dan Dunn, and I hope you will join me in voting for him on April 5.
