Editor’s Note: With the approaching elections, we will publish all candidate position papers and Letters to the Editor.
Some of you might know me as On The Road With Sherry, others might know me as Sherry Farrell or even Sharon Cummings. My Nickname is “Sherry” I was born on August 22, 1960 to Pearl and George Cummings who were both from Canada. George was the best Truck Driver in the world and many of you might remember my mom Pearl because she really was Chris of Mr. Steer’s very first employee. Pearl was also the best cashier in the world at our own Shaw’s for years. Many of you have warmed my heart telling me stories of when you would see them around “our” town. John never would have run for town office, but Pearl believed in him and said he should, and he did. He served on many committees’ before running for town council.
If there was one thing about this entire campaign that I could change it would be that Mom and Dad were here with my family to travel this election road that is happening right here in the place they loved and the place that they decided to raise me. Seeing a picture like this one, win or lose would have made them smile.
Why do I love Londonderry because of all of “you”. I grew up in an apartment in Derry first, and then at 79 Granite Street, Kendallwood Condominium, a place I still call home. I attended Keene State College because it was here in New Hampshire, my home. I still can’t believe I was accepted to Harvard University. I worked very hard for my degree in Administration but once I graduated I knew there was No Place like Londonderry.
One of my greatest gifts was being hired by our own Londonderry High School. I was honored when Mr. Thibodeau named Miss. Cummings, the Teacher Of The Year! My “campaign manager” is one of my former students, Mary Jane Stone, she contacts me almost every day to see how it is going and gives me tips on what “we” need to do. Mary Jane is now a devoted mom to three beautiful children.
I would be honored if you feel that I am the right person to represent Londonderry as “your” Town Clerk. As I have said before I know that each one of us running for this position are more than capable to do a good job. There is already an amazing, friendly, efficient, and helpful staff in place; I don’t think anyone of us can miss.
The one thing I promise you if you vote for “Sherry” is that I will appreciate that you trusted me to work for you in our town of Londonderry. I believe the most important issue is making the people of Londonderry feel comfortable and welcomed each time they meet with me. As Mary Jane reminded me I do think a little chocolate and something sweet can brighten a day so if I’m elected I hope you stop by and say Hi; if my daughters and I have been baking the night before try a little of this or that too. I will be there to “serve” you and to support our Town Offices.
Please Vote on March 11th <3
With A Grateful Heart “Sherry”
WORK FOR A CAUSE,
LIVE LIFE TO EXPRESS,
NOT TO IMPRESS.
DON’T STRIVE TO MAKE
YOUR PRESENCE NOTICED,
JUST MAKE YOUR ABSENCE FELT
