A Message from Mayor Shawn Pfaff
Call me old school. I am one of the ever-shrinking number of people who still enjoys Thanksgiving to its fullest without letting the Holiday television commercials and the Christmas music playing on the radio as early as late October deter from enjoying my favorite holiday of all. I enjoy Thanksgiving so much because of my love of food, family and most importantly, for the time to reflect about the many things that make me thankful.
I believe there is a lot to be thankful for in Fitchburg. I am thankful to one of our signature businesses for investing in Fitchburg by further adding to their incredible campus by opening a more than $100 million state-of-the-art research facility that will employ more than 100 high-skilled workers and will attract investors, researchers and clients from around the world. I am thankful to the nearly 50 businesses that have broken ground, opened or expanded in Fitchburg over the past year, and to all of the members of our business community who have taken the risk and invested in Fitchburg which has provided jobs for so many of our residents.
I am also thankful for our city employees who work hard every day to make our city something we can all be proud of. I am thankful for my fellow elected officials who I work with to implement our collaborative vision of creating jobs, investing in our community and holding the line on taxes and spending. Lastly, and most importantly, I am thankful to you as residents of Fitchburg. It is your generosity and desire to make Fitchburg a great community by building and funding our wonderful library, building our fantastic splash pad park, investing in public infrastructure and public safety that makes Fitchburg an even better city to live, work, raise a family and retire.
I wish you safe travels and all my best as we head into the Holiday season. If you have any questions or if I can ever be of assistance, please contact me at 270-4215 or via email at email@example.com.
Shawn Pfaff, Mayor
