Rick Jennett, who has served on Natick’s Select Board for the past 9 years, announced this week he will not seek a fourth term. See and hear his announcement a little past the 17-minute mark of the Natick Pegasus recording from the Dec. 1 Select Board meeting.
“It’s a very personal decision, it’s been a very difficult decision, I love this community…” he said. “It’s the right time.”
Jennett has compiled 20-plus years of service to the community between Finance Committee and Select Board.
This follows the recent announcement by fellow Board member Sue Salamoff that she won’t seek re-election either during the spring election on March 29.
Jennett made his announcement on the day on which nomination papers for public office became available at Town Hall, and he encouraged people to run. “Please, go pull papers…Show us that you care as well,” he said.
Jennet called being a Select Board member an honor with great responsibility. “It is not an easy job, it’s one that you commit so many hours serving our community above and beyond the TV time that everybody sees or sitting at Town Meeting. It’s an investment.”
