Why I support John Dickson for Brewster Selectman

John Dickson for Brewster Selectman

I am voting for John Dickson for Brewster Selectman. John will bring the kind of change that Brewster needs to secure our future.


John and his supporter State Senator Dan Wolf at the Brewster Transfer Station last Saturday.

The Brewster Board of Selectmen needs change. The budget process, which this year has been going on since December, is a mystery to most voters. Watch BOS meetings on TV, or go in person, and the budget line items being discussed are not presented to the public in any form. John Dickson will work toward greater transparency for all government processes.

We in Brewster are facing erosion on many fronts. Our beaches, our roads, our open space, our schools are all subject to the relentless pressure of both nature and economics. This situation cries out for long term planning for both capital and operational budgets. Neither are currently done in Brewster. John Dickson will work for long term budget planning.

These two issues and more are what John will seek to undertake with the Board. While John has many strengths, including being active in his community and well-versed in government process, his vision and enthusiasm in particular make him an excellent candidate for Selectman. I urge you to vote for John Dickson for Selectman.
