Thank you for your vote of confidence!

May 22, 2018
It has been one week since the election and I have been sworn in for my 3rd term on the Grafton Planning Board. I wanted to take this opportunity to directly thank all the voters of Grafton who came out and exercised that right last week whether they voted for me or not, but I especially want to thank those who gave me one of their votes to continue serving the Town of Grafton on the Planning Board. Six years ago when I was first elected, it was a great feeling but it is even better to have received a "vote of confidence". 

In the next term I will:

  • encourage other departments and committees to think through the lens of zoning as well and what could potentially be done to further enhance zoning in ways that would help deliver on their objectives and provide improvements for this town,

  • encourage both the department but also the town to be more transparent, improve the flow of information to the public, and increase the awareness of the town,

  • promote the development of a North Grafton Bikeway, a Transit Oriented Mixed Use Development including Affordable Housing near the Commuter Rail Station, and development improvements in South Grafton on Main Street and North Grafton on Worcester Street.

Citizens play an active and essential role in deciding the future of a community, and I am honored to continue serving as an elected member of the Planning Board and make a difference. I will continue to balance the needs of development and growth with preserving the ideals and areas of this town that make Grafton a great place to live, work and do business.

Thank you,

Mike Scully

Campaign season again, why I am running.

March 31, 2018
Throughout my two terms, my interest in proactive planning has strengthened, my knowledge of local land use grown, and my desire to be part of the solution has only increased. I believe I have a track record of thoughtful planning and civic engagement, and I have the qualifications needed to get that job done. I attend meetings, understand the extensive time commitment the Planning Board requires, and I take the lead in saying “NO” when necessary and possible. I am working on updating my ...
