The following is a letter from Phil Crawford:
Today I am announcing my candidacy for the Board of Selectmen. I intend to run for the seat vacated by Al Merritt in the April Election.
I have lived in Lynnfield for 25 years with my wife Ellen and our four children. My involvement with the community ranges from coaching all of my children in various sports, to working in the community with the schools, churches and politics. I have been on the finance committee for the past five years where I currently serve as the Vice Chairman. I am a liaison to the Council on Aging, Library and Dept. of Public Works. In May of 2012, I was appointed by the Board of Selectmen as a member of the Fields Study Committee.
I have a Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts, Business School in Amherst, with a concentration in finance. I have been employed at the A.A. Dority Company in Boston for the past 30 years where we specialize in Surety Bonds working closely with the Legal and Construction industries.
I would appreciate your vote in April.
