On May 22 voters should elect Ben deRuyter to the Brewster Select Board.
Ben’s experience as a member of the Brewster Finance Committee, his prior term on the Select Board, and his 15 years as a business owner here on Cape Cod means he understands our town’s finances and is the best candidate to manage our budget.
Ben also has experience developing and managing affordable community housing. His work as president of the Community Development Partnership, an organization focused on affordable housing and economic development on the Lower Cape, gives him the tools to tackle one of Brewster’s most significant needs. Affordable housing should be one of Brewster’s priorities in the years ahead. With Ben deRuyter on the Select Board, Brewster can lead on community housing.
I worked with Ben when he served on the Finance Committee and while he was a member of the Select Board. In my experience, Ben is willing to make himself available, and to listen to the questions, concerns and ideas of the voters in Brewster. This is the mark of a strong leader. That is what Brewster needs. I urge others to join me May 22 in casting a vote for Ben deRuyter for Select Board.
