I am excited to announce my decision to run for Selectman here in Raynham, a place I have called home almost my entire life.
Raynham is a terrific town, and one that I have always been proud to be from. A town where my wife Debralee and I have chosen to raise our three children. I grew up on Barbra Road and Mark Drive and attended Raynham schools until graduating from Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School in 1997. I look forward to the opportunity to give back to a community that has given me and my family so much over the years.
I was fortunate to serve the town of Raynham as a Patrolman from 2003-2014, which was a dream come true. As a Patrolman, I was able to gain a better perspective of the entire community and many of our residents. I am currently employed at Nationalgrid on Cape Cod as a senior field representative. In this role, my responsibilities include designing, scheduling, and coordinating numerous projects at any given time in an effort to meet the expectations of our clients. In performing these core functions it is critical that I maintain direct communication between customers, contractors, management, union employees and the 10 towns we serve on the Cape.
Having now been removed from community service for a few years, I am eager to actively participate in our community and give back in a productive manner on behalf of our residents. I have been encouraged numerous times by countless town employees, residents, and business owners to run for Selectman. My goal as a Selectman is to bring a direct, honest, and transparent approach to town politics, operations, and departments all in an effort to best serve the community.
I am proud to be a member of the Raynham community and I am excited about this opportunity. In running for Selectman, I am asking for your VOTE on April 22, 2023. Thank You,Ken Collins
