Timmins Has Commitment Chelmsford Needs

March 26, 2019

I am writing to offer my support for Virginia Crocker Timmins to join the Chelmsford Board of Selectmen.

There are few people who are as committed to service and giving back to the community as Virginia. We have been churchgoers together for over 15 years and, during that time, I have been impressed by her effectiveness as a deacon, a member of the Board of Trustees, a church school teacher and an organizer of many service projects.

Virginia’s involvement with the Route 40 rezoning initiatives heightened her willingness to be an advocate for the residents and businesses there. She was instrumental in raising awareness, speaking on behalf of the people and made sure the recommendations did not take away the quality of life from people and businesses.

At our church, she worked with our youth on service projects that supported the homeless community. She volunteers at St.Paul’s Soup Kitchen and is an advocate for the Lowell Transitional Living Center as both a volunteer and an active board member.

“What do you want for Chelmsford” is the question we should be asking ourselves. I want a representative who will listen and hear my concerns, and then take those back to the Board of Selectmen. I want to elect someone who is intelligent, possesses great integrity and who wants economic strength handled in a careful, managed way that enhances, and not degrades, the character of the town.

VIrginia Timmins is the most qualified candidate for this job. She will work to be our voice by her commitment and passion for fiscal responsibility and transparency, and I will be voting for her on April 2.
