If you are a Charlestown resident who wants to see decisive change in town, cast a vote for Robert Malin for Town Council on Nov. 8. As a millennial, I believe it is important to elect forward-thinking candidates who will address climate change and other environmental issues like safe drinking water. Robert is a breath of fresh air for Charlestown, a candidate who cares about this town, its people and its future.
Robert believes in transparency and ongoing dialogue between those with political power and the citizens they represent. Political affiliation does not matter, he understands that we all must work together to foster productive change in town. We are all citizens of Charlestown, and as such, we all deserve to have our voices heard. Robert will work for all of us, rather than simply representing a privileged few.
Please join me in voting for Robert Malin for Charlestown Town Council.
