To the editor:

Rene Wood is well known to the residents of Sheffield as a local leader and advocate for the town and its people. She has been on the Board of Selectmen, Planning Board, Board of Health and has been involved in many other civic groups. As the former Chair of the Sheffield Council on Aging, I have worked with Rene and she was instrumental in moving the Senior Center forward in meeting the needs of the community. She supported the position of a full time director for the Senior Center which helped to add additional vital services as well as extended hours. She provided the background work leading up to the successful development of a viable and vital transportation system which is managed by the Senior Center.

We have also worked together as members of the Sheffield Association and the Sheffield Historical Society. She is always there to provide and then implement new ideas. She always has the best interests of the residents in mind and is the hardest worker I have ever met. Her energy and devotion are exactly what is needed at this time. It’s time for change, Sheffield, and Rene is the person who will listen to the people.
