Mashpee, MA - David W. Weeden will host a “Meet the Candidate,” on Thursday, September 26 at Dino’s Pizza’s & Subs in Mashpee from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
As the Town of Mashpee prepares for the October 1st Special Election for a selectman seat once held by long-time Mashpee resident and town leader, the late John Cahalane, candidates vie for voter support.
Mr. Weeden, a former member of the Town’s Planning Board is one candidate in a field of four seeking election to the seat which will fulfill the remainder of its 8-month term.
David, a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and Interim Tribal Historic Preservation Officer, is the Native American Representative to the Cape Cod Commission, appointed to that position by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council in 2016. David is also an elected member of the Tribal Council.
“There are critical matters of particular importance and as a member of the Select Board I feel they need to be prioritize and addressed.” said Candidate Weeden. “Our waterways are in a serious state of decline, while development continues at an accelerated pace…that’s not a healthy balance for Mashpee and if elected I’ll continue advocating for the preservation of our Town’s unique character.” Weeden added.
Town registered voters are encouraged to attend the event, hosted by Weeden and learn of his views on other key concerns, such as ideas on affordable housing, fiscal responsibilities and preserving local “home grown” businesses.
