Kratman is the Clear Choice

August 24, 2018 GMT

As someone involved in local politics for 12 years, and the former news editor for the Tewksbury and Wilmington Town Crier newspapers, I’ve gained perspective on what it takes to be an effective leader. While we are fortunate to have a number of qualified candidates in Wilmington and Tewksbury, Mark Kratman is the clear choice for our next State Representative.

Mr. Kratman has been among the most dedicated public servants I’ve been privileged to meet in either community. He not only attends all of his own selectmen commitments, but regularly attends the Planning Board, Council on Aging, Board of Health, Conservation Commission, and Finance Committee meetings. He knows what is going on across the town and listens to the concerns of residents.

Mr. Kratman is an independent thinker with a proven record of service and has articulated a positive, inclusive vision for the future of our communities. I encourage voters to join with me in electing Mark Kratman in the Sept. 4 primary election.
