Macksoud cites accomplishments

LINCOLN – Town Council President Keith Macksoud said he’s running for re-election based on his record of accomplishments during his 16 years of service.

Among his proudest achievements during his tenure, Macksoud said, “We have invested in our community by building a new middle school and senior center, refurbishing our police station and library and renovating our high school to make it a state-of-the-art learning environment. By utilizing the monies that the town receives from Twin River, we have also made over $20 million in improvements, without any tax increases. We have also just reached our goal of having 30 percent of the town’s land mass as public open space. This is a goal that was set in the comprehensive plan back in the 1970s.”

He said he was also pleased to play a part in preserving historic buildings, including the Hot Potato School, Hearthside House and the Valentine Whitman House.
