Dear Seekonk Neighbor,


I am writing to respectfully ask that you remember to vote for Adam Petronio as your Selectman on June 30th at the Annual town election.  This year’s election has been significantly delayed due to recent crisis so please vote either by absentee ballot or at the High School.

As Selectman, my first priority is to remain a servant-leader and represent the best interests of all Seekonk residents.  I understand the tremendous responsibility that is entrusted in serving as a member of the chief policy-making board of our great town.    I pledge to use the skills in policy formation, administration, and ethical decision-making that I have developed over the past 30 years of military and civilian service, for the betterment of the community we call home. 

Seekonk is rich in history and culture.   We have experienced tremendous growth over the past decade.   Now, more than ever, proper management and leadership is needed to oversee the spending of our hard-earned tax dollars.   I believe that we can do that through good stewardship.    We all deserve clear, simple, and honest communication efforts so informed voting choices can be made.  

I believe it is important for voters to know who they are voting for and how that person makes decisions.  My decision-making philosophy is based upon these simple questions:

  1. Does this decision meet the purpose of government? (or should it be a private business concern?)
  2. Is it legal, ethical, and moral?
  3. Does it meet Fiscal Law rules– Time, Purpose, and Amount?
  4. Are there any equal opportunity, fair practice, or diversity concerns?
  5. Should a decision be made, or is it provided elsewhere in an already established government program?

Thank you for your time and again, I respectfully ask that you consider me, Adam Petronio, when you cast your vote on June 30th.
