Let's get to the bottom...Bowen is being backed by Glen Straub and his legions. Commercialization within the equestrian preserve should be denied.

Change is good but not at this time...especially from someone who is being supported by the man who took "POLO" OUT OF PALM BEACH POLO...within the preserve.

Grow up Bowen. All these "business" types make me sick. They act like they have all the answers....nonsense.

Who is this Wenahm..he couldn't say exactly where he'd draw the line on commercial development like condos????
Just like he told Binks folks...'I'll never vote for twonhouses on a golf course" And guess what, Wenham voted for townhouses and the townhouses are coming.
When Wenham is 'attending all the functions' is that on Wellington time or Fire Rescue time...OR BOTH?? mmmm

Wellington has thrived under Wenham! Bowen has no experience and he says that his business experience counts? He runs a company that puts logos on T-shirts...how the heck can this man run the community? This is insane, his experience is not of the level that i want to see with my elected officials. He is being controlled by Mike Nelson, Bellissimo and Straub to finish up their work. DON'T LET IT HAPPEN!

As chamber president, he is using it to puch his campaign on the members. I know, I am one and get the emails from the chamber, ALL THE TIME!

Stick with Wenham, he truly does what is right for this town.

Definitely do NOT want to back a candidate that has ANY association with Straub.

Straub has/will destroy anything he can get his hands on (just look at the Big Blue PRESERVE that Straub sent bulldozers plowing and nearly destroyed just to put in homes)...imagine what Straub would do to the equestrian preserve.

Also, look how Straub "takes care" of the abandon North Course of the polo golf course near the library.
Straub is NOT a good neighbor.
Straub is a BAD landlord and a sneaky guy.

Wenham, however, just takes photo ops. Constantly has his pictures in the local newspaper.

Wenham can't be trusted...that was so in the property appraisers' office and now.

Yea, when DOES this guy do his smoozing...on the job...fire rescue time?

It is time for Wenham to pack it up.

Since the mayor position (No extra weight) carries the same vote as the rest of the council

Councilwoman Lizbeth Benacquisto is now working real estate and working with developers so its not all in the hands of the new guy.

Still, think it's time for change.

What do the other guys (what happen to the ladies?) stand for. Are they going to allow development in Equestrian area? It is up to the equestrians to take the lead on this. They should be sensitive to what is happening.

Vote for change. Someone needs to start fixing up the older communities in Wellington. They are starting to look slummy. Once one section "goes" so goes the rest of the neighborhood.

Vote "no" for Wenham. This article sounds like Wenham wrote it.

NO to Wenham.
Anyone but Wenham

Tom, sorry to have to tell you this but it is time to step aside and let some fresh air into the council chambers. You've had things YOUR way far too long and have lost touch with what voters really want!

Besides, aren't you on the county fire/rescue payroll, or is that a "no-show" job you've held all these years? Somebody isn't getting their money's worth and that somebody is the Wellington taxpayer.

VOTE THE INCUMBENTS OUT OF OFFICE!

I am new to the area and this is my first small city election experience having recently relocated from Ohio. Who are the three people you are referring to that you think control Mr. Bowen and why do you think that? Is he the same Bowen that I bought a house from about 10 years ago?
