Nelson Almeida for Seekonk Selectmen Building Relationships

NELSON ALMEIDA "BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS" I encourage our residents to ask questions pertaining to our town. Please contact me at Nelsonalmeida@comcast.net to address concerns or questions in person

To all residents of Seekonk:

I'm running for Town Selectmen to be your independent voice on the board. I am not part of the bullying problem. I do not have selectmen knocking on doors and putting out signs for me. I do not have selectmen writing articles on my behalf in local papers.

I show up at our Selectmen meetings on time and speak out at our town meetings. What we need is a neutral/independent voice on the board that is not gonna be persuaded by others and work for our residents in a fair and consistent manner.  

I have . Declining debates is a sign of someone who will not be able to work with or respect everyone. It is very important to our residents that they know who they are voting for. I encourage our residents to watch the several TV9 programs that I've been on—Concerned Citizens Forum, TV9 debate, Inside Seekonk and my own TV9 program that I did most recently.  

With me, our residents will get a true representation on the board and in our town. I will be involved in our town activities and be in our neighborhoods not just when it's time for elections.  

I thank you in advance for coming out and voting on Sept. 24 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at . It is very important to me and our community.

If residents would like to get together at a place or home to discuss issues of concern, I'm more then willing to attend. Please contact me directly at Nelsonalmeida@comcast.net. If residents would like to ask questions pertaining to our town, please feel free to do so and I will try my best to answer your questions.

Thank you,
Nelson Almeida

Nelson- "I have not declined debates. Declining debates is a sign of someone who will not be able to work with or respect everyone." Then who are you referring to? Thank you for the answer about free cash. Fiscal management is a key component of being a good leader. The example you provided was an important item, but in my opinion it could have waited for the regular town meeting. I would hope that you consider spending free cash only in emergency situations during the fall town meeting, should you be elected.

Mr.Abbott just talking about myself again. I attended all 3 debates I was invited to on my last campaign and have been invited to 3 on this campaign which I intend to attend all of them. Should I be elected I will most certaintly treat free cash of great care and thought on the use of it. Thank you

why would anyone vote for a selectman who can't even spell.
Nelson Almeida September 13, 2012 at 11:57 PM
Hi ana. I'm glad you joined us on patch today. It's good that everyone knows what's going on. Sorry that my spelling isn't perfect. As you should know that nobody is perfect. I'd vote for an honest candidate and not be too worried about spelling errors. Thank you

Nelson: Do you think it's fair for departments to be requesting funds at the Fall Town Meeting outside the town's annual budget process and beyond the department limits approved by the voters at the Annual Town Meeting in the spring? Do you think it's fair to ask the Finance Committee, whose role is spelled out in the Town Charter, to have to consider individual department requests in the fall outside the budget process described in the Charter?
