Meet Attleboro City Council Candidate: Jeremy Denlea

Jeremy Denlea is running for Attleboro City Council, Ward 5.

Name: Jeremy Denlea

Seat: Attleboro Municipal Council, Ward 5

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Colorado College; Juris Doctor degree at the Boston University School of Law. 

Offerings: Jeremy Denlea, candidate for Attleboro City Council Ward 5, said he wants to offer the City of Attleboro and Ward 5 three main things: new energy, new ideas and transparency. 

Denlea,26, says he might have a young face, but it comes with a lot of energy, according to the candidate who is running against Jerry Chase and Howard Levine. 

"I am passionate about the issues that affect the Ward 5 community," Denlea said. "I am not bogged down in the "good old boys (and girls)" style of governance."

The candidate said he is open to ideas from others and is willing to work with anyone to help better the City of Attleboro. 

Most of all, Denlea said he'd like to see more transparency at every level of Attleboro government. "Lack of transparency and dissemination of information has been a continued problem," he said referring to his offer to make his own my financial records open to the public at any time.

In fact, he said he is going beyond what is expected of him in the coming election, which is to turn in his financial information eight days prior to the election. 

"Any genuinely concerned citizen can go to my website and request my campaign's financial information," he said.

Budgetary and fiscal matters are equally important, according to Denlea. "I promise to look at City spending as equal to spending my neighbors money," he said. "If I wouldn't utilize (my or) my neighbor's money for something, it is likely inappropriate for the City to do so."

Transparency at all levels of goverment is exactly what is needed! New ideas can't hurt, either. Knowing him personally, I am confident that he will put the needs of his fellow Attleboro residents first.

Jeremy I wish I lived in Ward 5 to give you my vote! I urge residents who reside in Ward 5 to give Jeremy Denlea their vote - every vote counts and you can count on Jeremy! I've had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy on several occasions; he is a dedicated member of the Attleboro community with energy, passion and enthusiasm. Each time I met Jeremy, it was a time when he was out in the community lending a helping hand, rolling up his sleeves and getting involved, he is truly a valuable hands on contributor! It is imperative that we as a community not just react to events or daily struggles and needs but to initiate change and offer solutions. Jeremy takes a proactive approach and recognizes that a good Council member serves as a voice for the people, a Voice I am confident will represent the community well. Although, Jeremy is not a life-long Attleboro resident I am confident having him on the Council will have a life-long positive impact!

Jeremy is a resident in my community, Brook Haven Estates. I knew he would be wonderful to have at Brook Haven and when he told me he was running for City Council, I thought what a great opportunity for Attleboro. I have found him to have a great love for the community. Ward 5 would be well served to have Jeremy as a Councilor!

I too agree with the comments above. Jeremy would be a positive change to the City Council. I think his energy and honesty should be applauded. I hope the Ward 5 voters elect him on November 8.
