I was saddened to have just learned of Marty's passing. I served on the North Reading Con Com with him in his first decade as a member. For most of those years he was the Chair.
Marty was key to maintaining the viability of the Commission. He was knowledgeable and conducted meetings professionally. Marty could balance the sometimes difficult interests of applicants with the regulatory statues. He was there to assist and help. He served North reading well.
It was an honor to have been associated with Marty. May his family take pride and comfort in remembering him.
