Eastham, MA—Derek Burritt is officially on the ballot as a candidate for library trustee in the upcoming Eastham Annual Town Election on May 21, 2019.

A full-time resident and homeowner in Eastham since 2007, Burritt collected the required number of signatures for his nomination papers and received confirmation from the Eastham town clerk’s office last week that the registrar had certified the signatures.

“I know a lot of hands go into making the library what it is, and I hope to be a valued contributor,” said Burritt, who’s also a member of the Eastham Public Library 2019 Long-Range Planning Committee.

Burritt says he’s running for a seat on the library board of trustees to:

  •         Support, guide, and encourage others to evolve the community-centric life developing in the new library building
  •         Attract the best local and global thinkers, creators, and performers to enrich all the lives in our community
  •         Build on the forward-thinking actions of those who created the new library so it can continuously improve

“My son and I attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new library, and we’ve made it a part of our lives ever since,” Burritt said.

Burritt, 44, is an at-home dad to his 4-year-old son, Trent, and chief content creator at Gript Content, a marketing communications agency located in Eastham. Burritt, and his then-fiancé Dorothy, moved to Eastham from Hoboken, NJ, in 2007, and married the same year.
