Letter to the Editor, 22 February 2019: Candidate Emily Mitchell

By Robin Grace

I am writing this letter in support of Emily Mitchell’s candidacy for Bedford’s Board of Selectman. Although my relationship with Emily does not extend beyond our work as Bedford Free Public Library trustees, my confidence in her ability to sit on the board of selectmen is absolute.

In the two years that she and I have worked together as trustees, I’ve found her to be dedicated, disciplined and organized, characteristics that are key to effectively discharge the duties of an elected official, particularly one seated on the Board of Selectmen. As our current library board chair, it is clear from her probing questions and insightful comments that she has a thorough grasp of the subject in question. She is a skilled communicator and an equally respectful listener, open to considering those whose opinions differ from her own and conceding graciously when necessary. She fulfills her role as board chair with a steady hand and a calm demeanor.
