LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Caira’s Knowledge Of Local & State Government, Volunteer Track Record Sets Him Apart

Dear Editor,

I am writing in support of Kevin Caira, who is running for re-election for Wilmington Selectman.  I have known Kevin and his family for many years and feel that he has done a fantastic job over the last three years.   As the current Chairman of the Board Selectmen, Kevin has done an admiral job of guiding our town through some very tough issues.  He is honest, fair, transparent and extremely thorough.  His calm demeanor under trying circumstances has help to guide the board with a steady hand.  Some may misinterpret his easy going nature the wrong way, but he is a strong leader who does not make rash decisions and does not jump to unfounded conclusions.  He thinks things through, researches the issues and sticks to the facts.   He believes in allowing issues to work through the process that Wilmington’s by-laws have laid out and does not allow a few loud voices sway the board away from doing the right thing for the entire town, not just a few people with their own special interest.

I have worked hand in hand with Kevin through my involvement with the Wilmington Sons of Italy, where Kevin is the Chairman of the Roncalli Board of Directors.  Kevin has worked tirelessly to organize and run fundraising events such as our Comedy Night and Town Wide Yard Sale which raises money not only for the Wilmington Sons of Italy charities but also Wilmington Band Parents Scholarships.  He also is the event chairperson for the Sons of Italy Golf Tournament and Easter Bunny Breakfast.  Both of these events raise money for Alzheimer’s, Autism and Cooley’s Anemia. He also helps coordinate an Annual Car Show which this year will partner with the Wilmington Farmers Market  and the last two years has taken on the Breakfast with Santa for the families and youth of the town.  I can attest to his commitment and his compassion to help others. His leadership ability and organizational skills have led these fundraisers to huge successes. Kevin’s volunteer work extends beyond the Sons of Italy.  He has served the Town as Vice Chairman of the Yentile Recreational Development Committee.   This 20 acres of open space, 10 acres of which includes both passive and active recreation for our town residents is a tremendous asset to our town.  Kevin cares about our towns’ residents and their need for recreational facilities such as Yentile Park.

Kevin has the knowledge on how both state and municipal government work.  He worked in state government as an administrator for the State Retirement System for over 20 years and is now the Retirement Administrator for the City of Amesbury.  Kevin is fiscally responsible and works to ensure that our town has a high bond rating so that the town can do important projects without overpaying to get the job done right!  He works hand in hand with the Town Manager and his department heads to ensure town services are delivered at the level that we all deserve.

This year’s election is very important for our community.  I am confident that his experience and leadership in government service, both state and municipal, and his many years of volunteer activity exemplify what we need in a Selectman.

I would like to ask the residents of Wilmington to please join me on Saturday, April 27th and cast one of your two votes to re-elect Kevin Caira for Wilmington Selectman.
