  1. I am thrilled that Mr. Binaco is a write in for this position. Over the years he has served the town of Upton wisely and in an even handed, diplomatic fashion. At this juncture in our beloved town’s growth and development, we so sorely need his experience, diplomacy and advocacy for our shared values and concerns for the well being of Upton.
