-- On March 6, 2012 The Town of Reading, MA will be voting for one of our Town's highest elected officials. As a business owner, resident and mother of three attending school in Reading, this election is important to my family. I will be casting my vote for John Arena. I had the privilege of meeting John ten years ago when he was an active member of the church we both attended. John is approachable, thoughtful, listens actively and is always ready to help others before himself. He has willingly shared his knowledge and experience running a small family business, providing advice to address employee management, taxes and the impact of overhead on my own business. His professional experience with budgets and finance has made John an immediate contributor to the Town’s Finance Committee, benefitting the entire community. John’s focus on downtown new business growth to enlarge our commercial tax base will improve the climate for existing businesses. Our residents and business owners will benefit greatly from his ability to represent our issues fairly and respectfully.
This election is important. John is running for a Selectmen's seat because he loves this town which has served his family well over 30 year's time. Please vote for John Arena on March 6th, the best candidate for Reading Board of Selectmen.
