To the Editor:

I am voting for my fellow board member Robyn Hunter to continue to serve as a selectman for the town of Dover on May 15th at our Dover Town House.

Robyn is committed to working for all of us in Dover. She is dedicated to doing what is right for our town and she makes the time to serve all of us. As a selectman, I believe Robyn’s experience is the single most important differentiation of this election.

Robyn has lived in Dover 19 years, and has been a dedicated volunteer to Dover for 14 of those years. In addition to her career as a senior financial executive in the private business sector, Robyn served six years on our Warrant Committee. The Warrant Committee is where you learn about how our town operates and how it serves all of us. She served on the Regional School Committee and understands our elementary, middle and high school and vocational educational systems. She served on our Long Range Planning Committee looking at Dover’s future and on our Capital Budget Committee. Most recently, as chairman of the board, Robyn serves with me on the Board of Selectmen. On all committees she took her turn as chairperson. She is a listener and a leader. Robyn is dedicated to Dover as she has always represented the entire town.

She is committed to do what is right for all of us. On the School Committee she led the effort to look at total compensation during her time as chairwoman of the negotiation committee with our teachers. On the Long Range Planning Committee she worked to successfully find and bring in grant income to the town. As a member of the Board of Selectman she led the effort to get Dover designated as a Green Community and was instrumental in negotiating the agreements that led to the building of a Solar Array at our transfer station, which will benefit us financially and help our environment. She has led the effort for a fairer sharing of expenses between Dover and Sherborn as related to our Regional Schools. She studies issues, finds solutions and is committed to seeing them through.

Robyn is a friend to all of us and she is always visible in the community. I met Robyn more than 10 years ago coaching her nephew, Max, in town soccer. I got to know her well when her son, Sam Hunter, played with my son, Nick, on the Dover Sherborn High School soccer team. Robyn is a tireless advocate, she attends community events for seniors and will listen to anyone who has an idea for Dover or a story to tell about Dover’s past and present. She takes the time to have friendships with other government leaders in Sherborn, Needham, Lexington, Medfield and elsewhere to listen and learn about ideas that can benefit Dover. .

Please vote for Robyn Hunter on May 15. We need her experience.
