May 17, 2014
Town of Gosnold residents,
I am writing this to inform you that I am again running for the position of Selectman. I have been at this job for 9 years and feel there is still work to be done and that I have a lot to offer. I have always given to the job my all, and continue to be prepared to do so. I have done my best to be a voice of the people and do my best to maintain an unbiased attitude toward people and do what is fair for the Town as well as the people in general. This is not always an easy job to do but I have done my best for the last nine years and would continue to do so.
Thank you for the amazing opportunity and support. I hope I get the chance to be your selectman for another term.

From Sarah Berry
I have come to Cuttyhunk for my entire life . I have become involved in island concerns through the Long Range Planning Committee since inception, and on FinCom for the last two years. There is nothing that interests me more than securing a sustainable future for both year rounders and the seasonal users of the island’s resources, businesses and community. In the LRP we have developed a long list of priorities that I believe I can serve with a sense of balance, a willingness to think about the whole needs of the island, and the people who have chosen to live and work here. It is not easy to live and work on an island! It is not easy to be a selectperson on an island either but there is much work to be done in the next few years with the infrastructure work that needs to be done, the services that need to be maintained, and the resources that need to be preserved. I believe I can contribute to this work.
My professional life is devoted to investments and financial planning for individuals, foundations, and companies. I have chaired and served on numerous non- profits in Worcester for the last 30 years, both cultural, educational, and medical, as well as the community foundation and have a good sense of working on a team. I am sure I have much to learn, but am a willing to do the work for Cuttyhunk. I have had to adapt to in increasingly regulated environment in the workplace, much as Cuttyhunk has had to adapt to new regulations across the board, though at times it feels invasive to us all.
I have given this decision to run a great deal of thought and hope you will support me.
