Editorial: Endorsing Shahidul Mannan for Select Board

By contributor,

I have known Shahidul Mannan for a number of years and whole heartedly endorse him for our Select Board. As a very engaged citizen of our town, he brings the experience, both from his town engagement and professional expertise to our budget, strategic planning and applied town knowledge. Shahidul adds value to the current board. However, I also want to focus on Shahidul’s lesser known or recognized expertise and strengths that can be a great asset for the board.

Editorial: Endorsing Shahidul Mannan for Select Board

By contributor,

Shahidul Mannan's experiences with both big data and town finances make him an ideal candidate for Select Board.

His position on the appropriations committee means he spent years learning and subsequently supporting the fiduciary responsibility of the town, a key need within the Select Board. He tempers that with compassion and understanding. He has a friendly, even disposition, something that is required when dealing with so many diverse groups and needs within the town.
