Letter: Cosmas Committed to Beverly | Opinion
For the publisher:
With the retirement of two long-term city councilors, Beverly has the responsibility and opportunity to ensure that we elect new councilors who not only have the skills to run our city during tough times, but who have demonstrated a commitment to helping residents find ways in which government can serve them. We write to urge our fellow citizens to vote for lawyer William Cosmas, who has demonstrated this level of skill and care.
Last November, based on a Salem News report by Paul Leighton, our neighborhood learned that what we thought was an old toxic chemical spill in the ground under our homes had never been properly cleaned up. The community formed Voices of Concern North Beverly to determine how to protect our children, families and property, and the surrounding wetlands. After hearing about our cause through one of our members, Will immediately joined as a volunteer advisor and was instrumental, helping to navigate city government and the city. ‘State and giving confidence. We believe we have an advocate who cares and can help.
Simply put, Will has been there for our neighborhood when we needed someone – a calming voice, asking probing questions, pushing for change and accountability. We know he is committed to supporting our community until this terrible problem is truly resolved. We’re just as convinced that Will will be there the same way for all of Beverly, if we elect him.
