Election 2011: Bob Burr for Selectman


Bob Burr

A 1985 graduate of Canton High, Bob Burr has served on the Board of Selectmen since the board expanded from three to five members in 2004. Burr touted numerous major accomplishments of the board, including union negotiations for a new health insurance plan for town workers that has saved taxpayers a million dollars each year since 2005. He also said he was pleased with the town’s efforts to squash two major proposed construction projects: the 395 housing units on the Plymouth Rubber property and the proposed Westwood Station project.

Burr also pointed to the improvements of athletic fields throughout the town as an effort he has continued to spearhead for the past seven years.

As for the upcoming term, Burr said he looks forward to seeing through the completion of new lights at Ruane and Salah fields as well as the completion of the DPW site renovations.

He added he hopes the town will be able to reach some type of conclusion concerning the future direction for the Plymouth Rubber property and make an effort to fill the numerous vacant buildings on Route 138. But most important, Burr said he hopes to continue to lobby the state to allocate more power to the local communities.

“With less oversight and regulations, the towns will truly get to run their own affairs,” he said.
