Planning Board Virtual Debate: The Candidates Share Their Qualifications And Experience

Planning Board Candidates George Ferdinand and Keith Anderson.
Neither candidate has held elected position in Tewksbury previously.
To help inform voters, Your Tewksbury Today asked the candidates a series of questions related to planning and development in Tewksbury. We are publishing their answers in a series of four articles this week.
This is the fourth in that series of four articles. Links to the others can be found at the bottom of this story.
Question 4 -- What personal traits or experience do you have that would make you an effective member of the Planning Board.
Obviously, asking those that I have represented and/or those that I have worked with in management or people that know me would answer this question best. But being subjective, I would say the art of negotiations, problem solving and compromise with common sense. Otherwise, determination and I still believe that one or a few person(s) with a vision and passion can and do make a difference. And with these, I will strive to do my best if elected.
These are all traits needed as to an elected official to work with many, listen to all and make decisions, all in the best interest for The Town Tewksbury.
