CANDIDATE STATEMENT: Wilmington Board of Selectmen Candidate Ed Loud

WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a Candidate Statement from Selectman candidate Ed Loud:

My name is Edward P Loud Sr, I moved to Wilmington in 1988 with my Wife Doreen. We have three children, Eddie Jr, Brianna and Emily. My Mother in law Marilyn Cox lives with us.

  • I Graduated from Woburn High in 1983 participated in Woburn sports programs
  • I have presided on the Wilmington Board of Appeals for the past 14 years and currently reside as the chairman on the Board.
  • Currently on the Committee of the Yentile Farm Recreational Development Facility
  • Currently involved with The Friends at 9 Cross Street in helping with fund raising for Yentile Rec Park
  • Former Rec Basketball coach
  • Former Rec Tee Ball coach
  • A member of the Wilmington Knights of Columbus.
  • A Former Exalted Ruler of the Woburn Lodge of Elks 908
  • A former member of the Wilmington redevelopment Board
  • Volunteered for several fraternal organizations fundraising committees

Enough about me… I’m running for Selectman because I like helping people.

I can be reached at

I’m not running against anyone, I’m running for the people of this great town.

I want to keep the town on the path of being fiscally conservative, and keep all our great town programs, like the excellent school system we have, trash pickup, school buses, where the parents are not paying, along with all the school athletics programs, free to all.

  • Taxes: I want to see if the town can stabilize OUR taxes and keep all these great programs intact.
  • Transrail at the Olin Site: I’m 100% against trans rail getting on this site, but I’m 100% for the cleanup of the Olin Site. Transrail will just put a very heavy burden of traffic for all of our neighbors in that area. Plus, the site is already contaminated
  • New Boston St Bridge: I want to learn more of the design. I would only approve of this bridge, once a traffic study was complete and a truck exclusion on Woburn St. at Eames St.
  • Senior housing: I know that the town needs more housing for our seniors to be able to stay in town. We need to look into to how to make this happen soon, very soon. I would be in favor of the town selling or leasing town owned land to a developer. This could be the quickest way to get affordable senior housing in town.
  • Substance abuse crisis: I was very glad to see the town appropriate funds to hire a counselor, I just saw the RFQ for this and hopefully some help is on the way soon.
  • North Wilmington Fire Station: I want to see if this can finally become a reality, there has been a lot of talk, let’s get it done without raising taxes. The town does have some free cash on hand.

In closing, I am a tolerant, civil minded, honest and above all principled person who has great value for every individual, my home, my family and my country are the back bone of what I stand for.

I am asking for YOUR SUPPORT and YOUR VOTE ON April 22,2017 to serve on the Wilmington Board of Selectman, polls are open 8am-8pm. If you are unable to make it to the polls, an absentee ballot is available in the Towns clerk’s office at town hall until Friday April 21, 2017 at 12pm.

Thank you for your consideration,

Edward P Loud Sr.
Candidate for Wilmington Board of Selectmen
