James D. Driscoll, Chairman of East Longmeadow's Board of Selectman announces his endorsement of Jack Villamaino for the open seat on the Board of Selectman.
Jack is running for the remainder of the term left empty from former Selectman Gary Desile's unexpected resignation do to personal family reasons. There is a special election being held next Jan . 23.
"As soon as Gary informed me that he was resigning, the first person I thought of was Jack Villamaino. It is important that we elect someone who will carry out the duties of a Selectman with a clear and level head. We need someone who will put politics aside, and look after the interest of the taxpayers. Jack is that person. His experience working on state budgets and constituent services during his time working with Senator Lees makes him very well qualified" Driscoll said.
"I have known the Villamaino family all of my life. Jack's experiences working with a third generation family owned small business like theirs really rounds out his resume for this position. The town would be lucky to have him serve" Driscoll went on to say.
