Meet Joe Davis
Candidate for Board of Selectman
Monday, May 22, 2017
Vestry of First Congregational Church of New Gloucester
Joe Davis is running for the one vacant position on the Board of Selectman. Joe will be available at the vestry of the church on Monday night to tell us more about himself, why he is running for Selectman and the issues that he sees as important to the town. This will be a great opportunity to meet Joe and let him know about the issues that are important to you. Please come, bring a neighbor, and find out more about our potential new Town Selectman.
The election for the Town Selectman is on June 13. Mark your calendars!
The following is more information that Joe provided about himself:
My name is Joseph Davis and I have lived my entire 40 years in New Gloucester. I have been married for 10 years to Beth(Barton)Davis, who grew up in Gray. We have two sons, Carter (8), who attends Dunn School and Spencer(4), who is eager to start Kindergarten in the fall at Memorial.
I have been employed by the WalMart Distribution Center in Lewiston for 10 years. I am a den leader and assistant cub master of Pack 135 of New Gloucester. I serve on the Public Works Committee for the town. I am a current member of Cumberland Lodge #12. Mowing the Penney Road baseball field is another way I try to give back to my community. My hobbies include golfing, fishing and camping with my family.
I am running for Selectmen for the town of New Gloucester because I would like to see our small town stay small. We pride ourselves on being a rural, family-centered community. We have shopping areas in Gray and Lewiston/Auburn that are readily available. I would be proud to be a spokesperson for our town. Pledging to lower taxes is something I cannot promise. What I can promise is to be a good listener as we try to find a balance for our wants and needs and our income. Supporting a basic salary for our fire fighters is important to me. Having them be a part of the conversation is critical. My heart and soul belong to this town. It would be an honor to serve as Selectmen.
See you Monday!
