My name is Mike Walsh and I am announcing my candidacy for Lynnfield Selectmen. I am an attorney with my own practice and a life-long resident of Lynnfield. I am running for selectman because I believe in this town and want to commit my time to ensuring the future of our wonderful community. As your selectman, I will work towards maintaining and growing an open and transparent government, commit to fiscal responsibility, while encouraging all residents to let your voices be heard. As the son of a public school teacher and Lynnfield Firefighter, public service is in my blood. At a very young age I became a boy scout and one of the youngest eagle scouts in the nation. This experience taught me a lot and I continue to hold truth, honesty, and fairness as core values.
I believe in the democratic process and am Suffolk University’s youngest graduate with a Bachelors’ Degree in Political Science at age 17. I received my law degree at 21 and have a “Master of Laws in Global Law and Technology.”. As a practicing attorney, I believe Lynnfield with be served well with my skill set, passion and energy to serve the people of our great town. I am proud to say, I am a political outsider and very much want the opportunity to represent ALL the people of Lynnfield. I am not afraid of a challenge and will work tirelessly to represent all taxpayers of Lynnfield.
Currently, I am in my second term on the Housing Authority. I have participated in many local and neighborhood issues and have remained politically active on issues that are important to the residents of Lynnfield. For many years, I have been affiliated with the Massachusetts Bar Association Mock Trial program, and currently serve as the attorney coach for one of Lynn English’s Mock Trial Teams. I also have volunteered as the General Counsel of Top Soldier Inc, a local non-profit based in Peabody dedicated to helping young men and women train to join the military.
Giving back to the community through public service, is what makes Lynnfield such a great place to live. I am a man of the people. As a litigator, I am a zealous defender of my clients. As your selectman, “Transparency and Honest Government” will be my watch words. I have the time, passion and experience to represent the good people of Lynnfield. I am committed to maintaining our outstanding community and ensuring its future. Please vote for me on April 11th .
