Dear Friends,

I am standing for re-election as a member of the Needham Select Board, where I am the current Chair during one of the most challenging periods in Needham’s history.

This year, we confronted a pandemic, and came through a bitterly contested national election. We are facing long-term economic and environmental challenges. And we are working hard to confront discrimination and promote diversity and equity in our community.

You may notice that I use “we” a lot. That’s because I work collaboratively with my colleagues in the town government and with my fellow-residents in the community.

I have been an active, dedicated, and highly-engaged public official and civic volunteer in Needham for many years, including the past twelve as a Select Board Member. As a veteran of town government, I pride myself on being accessible to all citizens of our town, respectful of all viewpoints, and committed to finding creative solutions for residents, businesses and Town Government.

I am asking for your vote on Tuesday, April 13th so that I can continue to:

  • bring vision of vibrant economic development
  • promote civility in a more welcoming and inclusive town, and
  • bring an atmosphere of collaboration and creativity to the Select Board

I hope you will agree that my forward-looking approach and demonstrated commitment will continue to serve all the citizens of our town, and promote diversity and equity in everything we do.

Thank you for visiting this site and for your consideration,

Moe Handel
