Making Haverhill Best

Today [January 2, 2012], I start my 5th term in Haverhill.
I recognize the unique opportunity I have been given to have a 5th term, it is the greatest honor of my life. But it is also the greatest challenge, for with great opportunities come great challenges. As I said in my inaugural address:
"I am determined today that this unique 5th term not be an opportunity to be mired in the past, but an opportunity to begin a new era."
My plans for the new term: to fix our schools, revitalize our downtown, and improve our waterfront. (Please see below.) I will lay out more detail in the weeks and months ahead.
I call my overall plan, "making Haverhill best" -- and I hope you agree with it. Let me know.
