opinion: Community connection shows Mark Ouimet's value as elected official
I am writing to express my support for State Representative Mark Ouimet. He is up for re-election and I’d like to explain why he will have my vote in November.
It is clear to me that Rep. Ouimet has made an effort to get to know the residents in his district. Just this summer, I have seen him at the Saline Celtic Festival, the Manchester Chicken Broil, and just about every event I have been to here in Chelsea. It is important for elected officials to have a strong connection to the communities they serve. That’s why it is so encouraging that Mark makes such an effort to be visible and accessible, from simply being present at events to holding meet and greets and town halls. This allows the people he serves to be able to voice their concerns and he is always sincere and attentive.
Mark Ouimet is a representative who works with his constituents first in mind.
