   Dear Westfield Resident,
           My name is Norman Greco and I am running for Mayor of
         Westfield. Please ask yourself, “Have I had trouble or
         concerns regarding the following?”

                                                                                     • Driving around town without success trying to find a

                                                                                • Conditions of our parks and fields
                                                                                  that are being maintained below
                                                                                  Westfield standards.

                                                                                 • Completion of an addition or renovation to your

                                                                                 • Sub-standard conditions of town streets that have

                                                                                • Town questions or concerns

                                                                                  because no one responds to

    WESTFIELD NEEDS A MAYOR WHO WILL ADDRESS
     AND SOLVE THESE VERY IMPORTANT PLATFORM
       ISSUES WITH A COMMON SENSE APPROACH.
   AS MAYOR I WILL:
   • Call for a town referendum regarding the approval of a parking deck,
     placing the decision in the residents’ hands.
   • Create a Parks & Fields Department to specifically maintain our parks
     and ball fields, putting pride back into our town owned properties.
   • Streamline town services.
   • Insure that potholes are repaired within 7 days of being reported on our
     new “Pothole Hotline”.
   • Be responsive to all residents.
   • Bring a business-like, common sense approach to government.
   • Realize the impact of any tax increase. I will strive to maintain a
     reasonable tax level. Lastly, let me assure you that my platform issues
     will not increase taxes.

                  I WILL BE THE MAYOR FOR ALL WESTFIELD RESIDENTS.
                      I WILL REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF OUR TOWN,
                                 NOT A POLITICAL PARTY.

                                                                                                                         Sincerely,
