I hope that you will consider voting for John for Lynnfield Planning Board on April 10th. I believe he will be a great addition to the Board. The following is an introductory letter John has written to explain his candidacy. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I am John Gioioso and I am running for the Planning Board in Lynnfield. I am asking for your consideration in voting for me on Tuesday, April 10th. Some of you may personally know me and others are receiving this email through a mutual friend. I want to thank you for giving me your time so that I may tell you why I am running and why I feel that I am qualified for the position. I am running for Planning Board because I want to contribute to decisions that will impact our town, not only today, but for future generations. Like any town, Lynnfield is evolving and we must be sure these changes promote the integrity and values of Lynnfield. The Planning Board is an independent group who play an important role in overseeing zoning bylaws, rules and regulations for the subdivision of land, and act as a steward on behalf of residents of Lynnfield. I feel that my professional background fits with the responsibilities of the Planning Board and the values of the town. I believe I’ll be an asset to the Planning Board because I have:
• Over 35 years of experience in real estate and building management
• Participated in real estate steering committees to develop best practices
• Experience working with different zoning boards across North America
• Reviewed new development proposals and design development on a daily
• Served as an Adjunct Faculty member at Boston University teaching Real Estate Studies
A designation as a Certified Facility Manager (CFM) and Master of Corporate Real Estate (MCR) My professional background, and participation in volunteer activities such as the MarketStreet Advisory Committee and the Lynnfield Catholic Collaborative Youth Ministry Committee deepens my commitment to our town, which is why I am running. In addition, over 10 years ago, my wife Colleen and I moved to Lynnfield to raise our daughter, Genna. I already knew Lynnfield quite well because Colleen grew up here as did her Dad, Jack Donegan. Like the Donegans, many families have strong roots here, which I believe is one of the many reasons that Lynnfield is so unique. Similarly, many of us move here because of Lynnfield’s small town charm. I hope to be a part of the decision making process that honors the character of Lynnfield. I am asking for your consideration in voting for me for Planning Board on Tuesday, April 10th.

It is most appreciated.
