I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. William Ryan on
regional , community issues in the last year and only
recently learned he was on Haverhill's City Council.
So even though this would be a point of embarrassment it
is in fact an indication of the quality of our relationship
in that it was focused on the community issues we both
embraced. Mr. Ryan's "outward" and selfless bearing
is a redeeming quality in a public servant and certainly
applying the label " politician" , which has now become
a deragatory word for many would never be appropriate
His resume is impressive; 6 years as Haverhill's Mayor,
4 years as School Committee president, State Representative
for 6 years, 12 years on the city council and numerous
trustee and board positions. So certainly in some circles
he could easily be branded as ; " a politician".
But my experience with him has been an enlightening one.
Not knowing fully his background other than the mayoral
appointment, his devotion to community advocacy and focus on
regional issues that relate to our common well being have
lead me to appreciate him even more.
The people of Haverhill will continue to be well served with a
public servant who cares deeply about his community and
wishes to serve its residents with all his muster.
I hope to see his good work continue in the community adjacent to
mine on Haverhill's city council.
Please vote for William Ryan- City Council, Haverhill on November 5th
