  • Update: CATS Academy a $25 Million Project (Click here for full story) Friends and neighbors, A few things to report:1) No work contracts have been awarded.  I have received calls questioning why unions weren't awarded the contracts or why non-union shop were awarded contracts.  Facts are no contracts have been awarded yet, just rumors.  This a privately funded undertaking.  Union and non-union labor quotes are being accepted.  It is a level playing field so all who are bidding are given equal opportunity to bring the best offers and quotes.  2) Misinformation has been posted on telephone poles, including that the school is tax exempt: that is false. CATS is a private boarding school and will pay property taxes; unlike Thayer Academy which does not.  3) Please, if there ...

  • Just in Time: A Breath of Fresh Air (Click here for full story) Had the distinct pleasure to share time with Karyn E. Polito, Candidate for Lt. Governor. Karyn is a breath of fresh air, a regular, down to earth person for whom I have great respect and confidence. She is a mum, was a State Representative, a former Selectmen and former candidate for State Treasurer. That aside she is honest, sincere, and tough. She and Charlie Baker can lead us and rescue us from one party domination that has failed us miserably. Party politics have failed us, divided us and hurt us pitting groups and special interests ahead of good government. The days of JFK, and Reagan are gone forever. Statesmenship seems dead; At the very least it is absent. The ...

  • Sgt. Billy Torney Honored (open image.jpg included) Sgt. Billy Torney with mum (Maryann Harrington Torney) after Billy was honored for his military service in Bayji, Iraq (2004-2005) and community and public service. Whether shoveling a senior out or serving us as a fire fighter on Ladder 7 at Meetinghouse Hill, Dorchester under Capt. Munroe, Billy serves others.

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
Paul "Dan" Clifford
