Samantha Wilcox - Richmond Town Council

"One of my goals as a new councilor is to ensure residents are informed. While canvassing, I often heard that residents felt like they had to be on social media to receive information.

 

To help communication, I have started (and hope to continue) to provide councilor updates periodically. My intention is that residents can be informed of decisions I have made, my reasoning for decisions and upcoming topics. It will reflect my opinion and not the thoughts or opinions of other groups/individuals. These posts can be found HERE and you can sign up to receive an email after posting.

 

I look forward to serving you on Town Council and please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions."  

Megan Cotter House Distict 39 Thank you

Dear friends and supporters - We did it!

To the voters of Hopkinton, Richmond, and Exeter, thank you for your support. I am truly humbled and can’t wait to serve the community I love so much and represent you at the State House.

This campaign was truly people-powered. So many of you contributed to this win by knocking on doors, making calls, donating, writing postcards, putting up a yard sign, and getting out the vote in our District. These results show that every single action and every single vote matters. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I will work toward bringing people together so that we can invest in our public schools, protect our environment, and lower costs for working families and seniors. There's much work ahead of us, but anything is possible when our community is united.

Representing the people of District 39 will be my greatest honor.
