Congrats to Rob's brother on his re-election!

Congratulations to my amazing brother Doug!
Doug was re-elected as Councilor at Large in our hometown in Massachusetts. In fact, he got the most votes of any councilor at large.
     Doug has made a HUGE difference in the lives of the people who live in the city. He started out doing clean up of the beach, and has covered every topic including schools, businesses and the updating of the downtown area. I don't know how he keeps his full-time job, this job and is family stuff all going on. He's got more energy than I do... although I know he's also powered by Dunkin' Donuts coffee. :) 
  Way to go, Doug!  Tom and I are so very proud of you, and we're waiting for you to run for Congress. They need an honest politician! :)

Doug's Website says: 
For 10 years, I worked hard to earn the confidence of the people in my district serving as their ward councilor.  Since 2012, I've been honored to serve all of Quincy as a councilor-at-large.
I began my career fighting to cleanup and improve Wollaston Beach and Quincy’s coastal assets. Today, our city faces new challenges as we look to reshape Quincy Center, improve our schools, protect our citizens, create jobs, and keep taxes and spending under control.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
