To the editor:
I have known Ty Waterman for over a year as a colleague at the YMCA. Our departments don’t overlap often, I’ve been able to get to know him as a volunteer for his campaign.
Ty is very approachable. His friendly smile and caring disposition make you feel welcomed. It was no surprise to learn he is a social worker. A great listener, Ty not only considers what someone is communicating but also the emotional context and position behind it. He sweetly acknowledges others with nods and related questions.
His ability to connect with people and truly listen makes me confident in his ability to be a public servant as state representative for Attleboro. He wants to help everyone in our community. He’s already begun helping individuals offering resources and information to those who stop to talk to him in his travels.
His persistence and self-driven attitude toward campaigning shows he genuinely loves this city. The volunteers who have surrounded Ty during this time are wonderful neighbors who are supportive of Ty and his pledge. When Ty and I disagree we are able to meet, communicate openly and with respect. I encourage you to find out more about Ty by visiting tyattleboro.com.
