Letter to the Editor: Kevin Sullivan Seeking Reelection to Recreation Commission
The following is a Letter to the Editor:
I hope you will consider voting for me, Kevin Sullivan as one of your Recreation Commissioners.
I have served as the Chairman and Vice-Chair of the Recreation Commission, supporting healthy activities, trips, and facilities for our residents. I may be biased, but I believe Burlington has one of the best recreation departments in the area. Our town is fortunate to have a great staff who deserve most of the credit. Burlington's Recreation Department. thrives with the support of Recreation Commission, Town Meeting, Ways & Means, Capital Budget, business sponsors, tax payers and participants.
My past community involvement has provided me with an understanding and appreciation of the wide variety of residents' needs. My roles on the Cemetery Oversight, previous Master Plan, Bike Path, Dog Park and Memorial Building committees were important and educational. In addition, I have coached youth soccer, baseball, and hockey teams. I was honored to be selected by Burlington's Rotary Club as their Citizen of the Year.
The focus of the Recreation Department is enriching the lives of our residents and making them happy. Whether it's kids in awe of Santa arriving for the Tree Lighting on Al Fay's fire truck, parents laughing as their kids go up and down the waterslide twenty times at Celebrate Burlington, couples enjoying a dance class, or my wife coming home from an exercise class after a great workout, raving about the instructor. I take pride in knowing I had just a little to do with each event.
Please consider voting for me on Saturday, April 8th.
Kevin J. Sullivan, Candidate for re-election to the Recreation Commission
