The community’s message to the Select Board.

The Nantucket community has a long history of coming together when it matters most, to make things right. This time it’s about Ashley Erisman and Mark Beale, two very qualified Conservation Commission incumbents who have served in a balanced fashion. They both deserve to be reappointed, but for some inexplicable reason, the Select Board’s replaced Ashley Erisman – an experienced high school biology teacher, and team player, with a background in wetland resources and regulations – with a candidate out of left field.

There’s something wrong here – and the community is standing up. We hope the Select Board rights this wrong in its meeting on Monday. 

In the meantime, please write to the Select Board asking them to do the right thing. It’s essential to convey to the Select Board that both incumbents – Ashley Erisman AND Mark Beale – should be reappointed for another 3-year term.

Dear Select Board,

I am urging you to reappoint BOTH incumbents to the Con Com. Ashley Erisman AND Mark Beale are fair and objective. Together they have the scientific knowledge and experience to serve the community.

Thank you for your consideration.


Thank you for your help and enjoy your Sunday.

Julia Lindner
Executive Director
