My name is David M. Melo and I am running for a seat on the Board of Water Commissioners.
I have been a resident of Seekonk since 1999, am married and the father of two children. Currently I am employed by the City of East Providence Water Utilities Division. I have been with the Water Utilities Division since 1997 where I was first hired as a laborer. Over the years, I worked my way up the ranks until finally in 2003 I became a Labor Supervisor.
I have received and maintained licenses in Water Distribution (3D), Water Treatment (1T), Water Surveyor and a certified backflow tester. I feel that my experience and knowledge with the Water Utilities Division in East Providence would bring a positive addition to the Board of Water Commissioners in Seekonk.
Come April the voters of Seekonk will have the opportunity to choose from two candidates for Water Commissioner. I hope that the people of Seekonk will give me the chance to serve them in a positive way as Water Commissioner.
