I served on the building construction committee for Falmouth’s new elementary school with Teresa Pierce for three years. As with every committee, natural leaders emerge, and Teresa was clearly that leader. Teresa was able to synthesize information in a way that helped move the committee through complex and competing interests to a solution. Time and again, I saw both committee members and the architects look to Teresa for guidance.

I believe Teresa brought this ability to drill down through problems and reach a solution to her six years on Falmouth’s Town Council. And, I believe that she did so in a way that was thoughtful, inclusive and respectful of everyone. I am confident that Teresa will bring that same intellect and work ethic to the state Legislature. Please join me in supporting Teresa for state House District 44 in November.
