To The Editor,
In from earlier (this week) she makes several insinuations about my wife, Ginny Bonish, and I'd like to set the record straight. She implies in her letter that because Ginny and her supporters are out holding signs on a Saturday morning that we're bad parents. Nothing could be further from the truth. For the record, Ginny & I cut short our sign-holding last Saturday to attend our son's baseball game who plays for Wilmington High. Our 'crew' stayed until noon. After the baseball game we both headed to Marblehead where our youngest son was in a basketball tournament (he had two games there). Sign-holding is not an indication of being a bad parent - it's a sign of a candidate who has shown leadership and organizational skills to form a well run committee of individuals who believe she is the most qualified candidate.
Ms. O'Mahony next implied that the first thing Ginny did was to go find political allies. This is simply not true. Like her candidate, Ginny also did her homework. She met with many people in town before she decided to run so that she could make an informed decision. After deciding to run she earned the support of many in town who looked at her education (Boston College grad), her work experience (Tufts University - 19 years), her parental experience (1 graduate of WHS who is currently a sophomore at UMass/Amherst, a senior at WHS who will attend Tufts University in the Fall, and a 6th grader at the Wilmington Middle School), and her volunteerism (3 years on the Wilmington High School Council among other things). I can honestly say I would be impressed by her qualifications even if she wasn't my wife.
Ms. O'Mahony has her candidate and that's fine. I wish every election in this town was contested. But her snide remarks and insinuations have no place in any election, and frankly I'm surprised she has stooped so low since she has never met Ginny. I would also ask the voters of Wilmington to do their homework. In addition to looking at one debate where each candidate spoke for less than 20 minutes, you, the voters should check out each candidate's experience and record and ask yourself one question: Which candidate has the best qualifications and experience to help the children of Wilmington?
