Kirsi Allison-Ampe: “Of the three candidates, [Dan] brings the best analytical skills and financial acumen, talents he has used to aid our town through the past several years.”
Amy Speare: “Dan Dunn has been a strong voice for the Arlington Public Schools. One of Dan’s first major votes was to support an override with a strict three year financial plan for the Town. Dan has helped to manage that plan well and has been a leading force in stretching that plan to 7 years.”
Clarissa Rowe: “Sitting in the audience on Thursday night at the League of Women Voters debate, I was struck once again by Dan Dunn’s command of his job as Selectman. Dan is knowledgeable and experienced. He is comfortable dealing with the issues that arise on an everyday basis.”
Jane Howard: “Dan has proven that he understands how the Town works and its many challenges. He does his homework, and thus is prepared to ask thoughtful and insightful questions, always with the best interests of the Town in mind.”
Rebecca Steinitz, on Dan’s approach: “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.”
Phil Goff writes that Dan weighs all sides of an issue before making decisions, provides prudent fiscal leadership, and understands that public streets must be safe for all.
Elisabeth Carr-Jones: Knowing and respecting all three candidates for Selectmen this year, I had to ask myself the question, “Why is my support for Dan Dunn so unconditional, and why did I know I would support him for reelection before knowing who else would be running?”
Adam Auster “Dan Dunn has brought energy and insight to his first term on the Board of Selectmen. Local government is about solving problems, and Dan has dug into the nuts and bolts with creativity and diligence.”
Cindy Starks: “As a school committee member, my focus in Arlington is on the schools. As such, my support for Selectman goes to Dan Dunn.
Alan Reedy: (Dan) is a very good listener who takes input from many perspectives before developing his position on issues. As we start to tackle the challenges facing Arlington, I want Dan Dunn to be on the Board helping to guide the way.
