Who is Dan?

While serving Braintree, I am proud to have originated and earned passage of the "Citizen Soldiers Bill" and Senior Citizens Property Tax Relief. Working with the Mayor, we secured Community Preservation Committee (CPC) funding to build a state of the art community playground in the Braintree Highlands.  Moreover having secured other CPC funding, we are happy to announce a new Braintree Town Forest passive recreational area for all to enjoy in this little known town jewel.

Another initiative under study is to help small businesses expand and create jobs through increased tax exemptions.   

Well I grew up in Braintree; one of eight children. Went through Braintree Schools, served in the U.S. Army and graduated from Roger Williams University.  
My wife Colette and I raised five children here. I coached Braintree Youth sports and St. John's CYO Baseball.  Colette taught CCD at Saint Clare Parish. We know and understand the everyday stresses and challenges families, veteran’s and senior’s face, especially today.
My career includes thirty-five years in business, including managing a $70 million dollar organization, and seventeen  years (17) dedicated to good government. As Town Councilor, I work hard for you and will continue too.  Simply put, I enjoy helping people.  Hard and honest work is what I do and there is much more to do:
I have been honored by you, being elected and reelected as your District 6 (Precincts 11 and 12) Town Councilor. Other government experience includes being elected town wide to the Board of Assessors, serving as Chairman of the Veteran's and Elder Affairs committee, serving as a member of the Ways and Means Committee, Chairman of the Economic Development Committee and served as a Town Meeting member for 9 years and served on the Fair Housing Committee and Finance Committee.

Please inspect my record of action, advocacy, and accomplishments. It would be an honor to continue to represent you and all the people of Braintree's District Six (6).  
Respectfully, I ask for your continued support and vote on Tuesday, November 5, 2013
