I am writing in strong support of Len Diggins, candidate for Arlington Select Board. During the time I have gotten to know Len, he has impressed me with his humility, quick intellect, and ability to debate an issue with respect and an open mind. His approach is to listen intently, consider all sides, and form his own opinions, based on this input. Len’s empathy for others was seen in his decision to suspend his campaign at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, understanding that residents needed to care for themselves and their loved ones. This is the kind of person we need on Arlington’s Select Board.

To round out Len’s candidacy, he is highly qualified to be a member of the Arlington Select Board. Len has a background in data analysis, and deep knowledge of transportation, sustainability, and housing issues. In addition, his commitment to civic engagement through his volunteer work in Arlington and the region makes him unique in this race. Since Len attends every Select Board meeting due to his work over the past five years as a videographer for ACMI, he will hit the ground running on his first day as a Select Board member since he has been following every issue that has come before the board. For more information on Len’s candidacy, please go to his website:

Len Diggins is who we need during these extraordinary times to help continue to bring our town together as we weather the coming months. By mid-May, every registered voter will receive a postcard from the Town of Arlington and, when returned, voters will be mailed a ballot so that individuals who choose to vote without going to a polling location may do so. Polls will also be open on Election Day on Saturday, June 6th. Please join me in voting for Len Diggins for Arlington Select Board on or before June 6th.
