LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Former Selectwoman Judy O’Connell Endorses Kevin Caira For Selectman

Dear Wilmington Residents,

It is with excitement and enthusiasm that I write this letter in support of Kevin Caira as a candidate for re-election to the Wilmington Board of Selectmen.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Kevin as a person and a community leader for several years and it is my honor to call him my friend. Over the years, I have continued to admire and respect Kevin’s dedication and commitment to helping others. Kevin’s long standing tradition of public service and his willingness to support various town projects & initiatives are remarkable.

Over the past several years, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Kevin as a member of the Wildcat Athletic Alumni & Friends Organization, the Yentile Farm Development Committee and as a former member of the Wilmington Board of Selectmen. My experience working with Kevin has been very positive and I have observed first hand Kevin’s superior work ethic and his keen ability to get things done. During Kevin’s first term on the Board of Selectmen I continue to be impressed with his ability to help lead the Town of Wilmington into the future as its current Chairman. Kevin is a leader among leaders who strives to provide best in class municipal services on behalf of all residents and the business community at large. Kevin is a staunch supporter of education, youth sports & recreational programs, elderly & veteran affairs, affordable housing and public safety to name a few. Kevin supports smart economic growth and development and supports the public process as part of this endeavor.

Regarding the public process, I applaud Kevin’s efforts to hear all sides of an issue in order to render a decision that he believes is in the best interest of all involved and not just a special interest group. I also applaud Kevin’s reserve as he supports other boards and committees in their efforts to do the job they have been appointed or elected to do. With that said, I have not always agreed with Kevin on every town topic or issue. However, I continue to appreciate and respect his position during all our conversations and particularly the ones when we have had differing opinions regarding a particular subject matter. As the current Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, I have been particularly impressed with Kevin’s steady and controlled behavior as he has been publicly attacked on numerous occasions with inaccurate information and with story lines that leave out key pieces of information that the voters deserve to know. Through this all Kevin has maintained his composure, civility and professional conduct which I find to be admirable. To me, Kevin Caira is wonderful human being, a true gentleman and one of the most honest, hardworking people I know! Based on his proven track record of successful public service and accomplishments that span over decades, Kevin is worthy of your vote on Election Day!

In closing, please join me on Saturday, April 27th in voting to re-elect a very deserving candidate, Kevin Caira, to the Wilmington Board of Selectmen. Kevin is the right choice and will remain committed to ensuring that the Town of Wilmington continues to be a great place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you.

Judith L. O’Connell
