I want to introduce myself to you. I am Margaret Ferguson. I would like to fill the City Council seat for Ward 3 that is now vacant because Lucas Herring is our new Mayor. I work at Capstone Community Action with the Community Economic Development Program with the Micro Business Development Program for the past 18 years. I have lived at 30 Bailey Street in Barre since 1975. My 4 children attended Barre City neighborhood schools.
I have been a member of the Savvy Speakers Toastmasters Club for the past 23 years. I have been a member of COSA, Circle of Support and Accountability for 2 years. I just became a Mentor with the Everybody Wins! Reading program at Barre City Elementary School and a member of the Barre Kiwanis Club. I was on the CVTV public access board when it was just beginning and served for about 6 years at various times.
During this short nine month period of being a part of the City Council, I would like to roll up my sleeves, and encourage others to join me in doing little things all around the city to Beautify Barre. I would like to encourage citizens to come out to informational meetings to know what is going on in Barre and get out to vote.
I need your support on Thursday April 26 at Alumni Hall (next to the Barre Auditorium) at 7 p.m. to be voted into this position.
I can be reached at 802-476-0908 home and 802-595-1633 cell. Please call and we can chat about what you would like to see happen in Barre. Together we can create the neighborhoods we want to live in.
