Cohasset Advisory Head announces run for Selectman

Statement by Peter Pescatore, candidate for Cohasset Selectman in the Spring Annual Town Elections.

In 1993 we moved into Cohasset from Westport CT. with our 3 school age sons. The boys all received an excellent education in the district’s schools and have gone on to successful college and professional careers. During the school years my wife Jane was PSO President for several years, elected to the School Committee in 2001 and has been employed at the schools since 2003. During that time I was a trustee and Treasurer at the Sailing Club and involved in various town activities including being a charter supporter of the citizen effort to fund a language lab at the High School that ultimately became the CEF.

Professionally, I have an MBA from Babson College and have completed Advanced Management Programs at Syracuse and Boston Universities. After beginning my career with KPMG in Boston I spent 18 years at Polaroid Corp., eventually leaving to become CFO at Farberware in NY, COO and President at Fetco Home Décor in MA, CFO at Primedia in KA, and CEO at TransNet, Inc. and Limoliner, Inc. in MA.

I was appointed to the Advisory Committee in 2010, and elected Chairman in 2011, I am honored to be reappointed as Chairman each year since. I have worked closely with the last three Town Managers and the Boards of Selectman to bring the town back to a sustainable fiscal position during a very unstable and challenging period for Cohasset. During my tenure the Advisory Committee has been unwavering in its focus and determination to insure that the interests of the citizens of Cohasset have been listened to and acted upon during policy formation and recommendations to Town Meetings.

Having carefully considered the needs of the community and issues before the town and with the support of my family, friends and many of my colleagues serving the citizens of Cohasset in volunteer, elected and appointed positions I am announcing that I will seek the Office of Selectman at the upcoming May 9th Town Election and respectfully ask you for your vote.
