Letters: Leadership that makes Essex a great place to call home

To The Editor:

I have had the pleasure of calling the Town of Essex home for the past 8 years.  My husband and I chose it for many reasons but, first and foremost, we sought a safe place to raise our family.  We have found that and more in Essex.   It is a place where the schools have exceeded our expectations, have made improvements when needed and are recognized on the national level.  To say that we love it here would be a very large understatement.

We know that we are fortunate to live in a community that has had town leadership that has consistently supported our educational programs, our non-profit libraries and the beauty of the preserved open spaces all around us.  That they have also done this while looking out for our seniors and our most vunerable citizens speaks to their commitment to all.  I have had the pleasure to get to know both Norm Needleman and Stacia Libby through my volunteer efforts and cannot think of a better team to lead our community.  There is not a doubt in my mind that Norm and Stacia will continue to provide the leadership that helps to make our town a great place to call home.
