Parker pledges to make government work for everyone

SCITUATE – Scituate Town Council candidate Terrell Parker, a Democrat, said he promises to add a fresh and much needed perspective to the council if elected.

“Right now, we’re seeing a town council that is hindered by group-think,” he said. “We have one-party rule that discourages dissent, accountability, and innovative ideas. ... I won’t be afraid to speak candidly, hold other Town Council members accountable and do what it takes to create a long-term plan for lasting positive change in our town.”

Noting that some residents have reached out to him regarding accessibility in government, Parker said, “It’s alarming that some members of our community feel discouraged from going to our current administration to voice their concerns. I pledge that if elected, I will ensure that the government is working for everyone, not just the people who voted me in.”
