Letter: Palumbo endorses Howell for Select Board

February 23, 2023

Mark is a kind, intelligent, and thoughtful listener. He has experience both in town government and in the private sector and knows how to work with others to solve difficult challenges.
He believes progress toward sustainability, diversified housing, and creating a more welcoming and inclusive community may best be accomplished through solutions born of collaboration between citizens interested in each area rather than through the single-minded pursuit of separate projects.
He understands that we want this to be a town where teachers, town employees, health care workers, and those in the service industry have good housing options available to them right here in Concord. A town where seniors can afford to stay in their homes and families know that the schools are working to meet the needs of all their students.
Like all of us, he wants a town where the climate and culture is welcoming to all who live here, work here, study here, or simply visit. Mark’s lived experience as the son of an interracial couple has always informed his worldview. This is a perspective we need in town government.
To learn more about Mark, check out his website at markforconcord.org. He also has many coffees and meet and greet opportunities in the month ahead including the Concord Carlisle League of Women Voters has scheduled a televised candidate forum for Sunday, March 5, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Concord Town House Hearing Room.
The election is Tuesday, March 28. See the Town of Concord Election and Voting page for early voting and Absentee Ballot information. The voter registration deadline is March 17 for this election.

Please join me in supporting Mark. Concord needs Mark Howell on the Select Board.
