Paul Criswell not running for re-election to Wellesley Board of Public Works
To the Editor:
I am writing to very reluctantly announce to the residents of Wellesley that I will not be running for re-election to the Board of Public Works in 2019. I have recently had health issues that compel me to cut back on some of my activities while I heal and recover. Fortunately, I have a good prognosis and I am looking forward to full restoration of my health. In the meantime, I will be looking for ways that I can contribute to the Town on a more limited basis.
I want to thank all of the residents who have offered me support, encouragement and constructive criticism over the past years. I have found that service in Town government is personally enriching and rewarding. I have made friends and have had the privilege of working with some incredibly talented people. And most importantly, the Town of Wellesley is blessed to have a reservoir of very qualified people who will step up to take the place of those of us who are stepping down.
