Peter Mullin announces candidacy for re-election, Pct. 2 Town Meeting Member
Peter Mullin of Gaskins Road is seeking re-election as a Town Meeting Member from Precinct 2.
Mullin has been active in Town affairs since 1986 when he was first elected a Town Meeting Member. He currently serves as Chairperson of the Town By-law Review Committee and previously served on the Town Government Study Committee and has twice served on Police Chief Screening Committees.
“The Town faces difficult financial issues this year, and for the foreseeable future, because of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mullin said in a statement. “Our revenues are going to be off and we will need to scrutinize and prioritize all of our expenditures,” he said. “I support the efforts of the Moderator and the Select Board to organize a ‘virtual’ Town Meeting this year and to minimize the number of articles in the warrant.”
Mullin has long been active regarding the former Hendrie’s Ice Cream plant at 131 Eliot Street and development in the Central Avenue business district. “It is great to have the old plant down. I look forward to the completion of the approved multi-use development.” One of the major issues impacting Precinct 2 over the next few years will be the proposed Planned Unit Development for the Lower Mills area. Over the years I have been supportive of investment in our schools and in thoughtful changes in our Zoning By-law to permit more commercial and multi-unit residential development. I also support the hiring of a Chief Financial Officer for our Town.
Mullin is employed as an Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Bureau of the Attorney General’s Office. He previously served as an Assistant U. S. Attorney in Boston and is a graduate of Boston College and Boston College Law School.
“I moved to Milton in 1983. It is a wonderful Town, with generous, civic-minded people. I ask for one of your nine votes for Town Meeting Member in Precinct 2.”
