Metivier pledges to be strong, independent voice

CUMBERLAND – Former Town Councilor and longtime town resident James Metivier is running for Town Council in District 1, the 30-year Valley Falls resident previously having served in that position from 2016 to 2018. While councilor, Metivier said he worked closely with the School Committee and served on the Educational Funding and Development Commission as well as the Building Committee.

“That experience is crucial during these challenging times," he said.

As "a proven leader," Metivier said he has the experience required to face the challenges affecting Cumberland residents. “As an independent, I am not in the pocket of special interests or political parties," he said. "I can work effectively with everyone to make things better for all of Cumberland’s residents and businesses. During my previous time as town councilor, that is exactly what I did."

A member of Club Juventude Lusitana and a communicant of Our Lady of Fatima church, Metivier works at Amica.
