The time is now to elect Michael A. Keane to the Bennington Select Board.

Michael will bring to the board a wealth of real life business experience.

He has demonstrated a true dedication to our community with his record of civic and local involvement evidencing that strong commitment. In my initial year on the Select Board I have observed incremental improvement in the business climate of our community, but I also see that our town is at the cusp of a real economic renewal which Michael whole heartedly supports.

These initial efforts will stall if individuals like Michael are not provided the opportunity to make things happen. We need more than one issue participants in the process. Bennington’s economic progress needs leaders with true vision and demonstrated ability to make that a reality.

Please cast your vote for Michael Keane to the Select Board on March 4. Your vote does matter.
