John Keohane announces candidacy for Milton Select Board

My name is John Keohane and I am running for a seat on the Milton Select Board. I have lived in Milton with my wife since 2008 and I am so incredibly lucky to also have my daughter, son in law and two grandsons as residents of this amazing town.

As a small business owner for 40 years, I understand how to listen to all sides of an issue and come to a compromise that best benefits all involved. I pride myself on being an empathetic leader and I promise that my singular focus will be to make decisions that are in the best interest of Milton.

I have worn many hats from hiring talented people, to executing business development plans and—most importantly—being financially responsible for my employees and their families. The business lessons and financial sensibilities I have learned over four decades as a small business owner will help me lead our town into the future and ensure we leave Milton in better shape for our children and grandchildren.

I am grateful to have met so many wonderful people in Milton, but there are so many I do not yet know. I look forward to meeting you and listening to your concerns and ideas. It is critical that elected officials be responsive to different views, perspectives, and neighborhoods. I believe in being a leader and to do that effectively I cannot just surround myself with like-minded people. Respectful discussion and disagreement are healthy. As one of 10 children, I am comfortable with discussion, disagreement, compromise, and healing.

We are long overdue for consensus building.

We should treat everyone in town with respect and dignity.

Join me in making this a reality.


John Keohane
