Brindle Kicks Off Mayoral Campaign to Enthusiastic Westfield Crowd
May 4, 2017 –Shelley Brindle hosted nearly 200 supporters tonight at Ferraro’s Westfield to kick off her campaign for Mayor of Westfield.
“I want to create an inclusive and open town government where everybody has a voice and everybody matters,” the former executive at HBO told a crowd so large that a line formed outside of Ferarro’s reception room. “When I look at Westfield, I see unrealized opportunity: In the untapped talent of our residents, the landlords and small businesses that are so vital to our downtown and our town’s employees. Our people are our community’s strength.”
Brindle was joined by the Westfield Together slate of candidates for town council, who include Linda Habgood (Ward 1), Michael Dardia (Ward 2), David Contract (Ward 3), and Dawn Mackey (Ward 4).
She was introduced by Tom Jardim, who served as Mayor of Westfield from 1997 to 2000, and praised Brindle’s proactive style of leadership. “Shelley believes that this town has a better future,” he said. “What she has done in her own life proves that she can move this town to a better future.”
