Phil Crawford Announces Candidacy For Lynnfield Selectman

Vice chairman of the finance committee has lived in Lynnfield 25 years and is member of the fields study committee.

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.

Phil is a true professional, a hands-on guy that has a tremendous wealth of business and finance knowledge which will be an asset to the Lynnfield community. He has served the town well in other committees and organizations and will make a great Selectman. We are lucky to have someone of his caliber to step up and offer his services. I hope the town will join me in supporting Phil.
