Student Appointed to Walsh Committee
Fifteen-year-old Violet Rein Bosworth is the newest member of the Walsh Property Community Planning Committee. The select board appointed the Nauset Regional High School sophomore as the student liaison on Dec. 7.
The Walsh Committee, which has 15 members, was established by the April 2019 annual town meeting to engage a wide range of Truro residents in developing plans for use of the 69.9-acre town-owned property purchased from the Walsh family in 2019 for $5.1 million. The committee’s recommendations must ultimately be approved by town meeting voters.
“I’m really in touch with my generation and the kids younger than me,” Bosworth said during the meeting.
“I feel it is important to have a young person’s perspective and input on a committee that will make recommendations that will affect generations to come,” Bosworth wrote in her application. “The meetings are after school. I am available except for some exceptions during volleyball season.”
Bosworth is the daughter of select board member Stephanie Rein; she will serve as a non-voting representative.
Stephanie Rein, who recused herself from voting on her daughter’s appointment, is the select board liaison to the Walsh Committee. Bosworth’s was the only application for the position.
“I just want to say, Violet, my heart is leaping with joy that someone of your age is willing to step up and has the interest to be involved,” said board member Kristen Reed.
“Violet, you are the future of Truro so, yes, you should be on this committee,” added board member John Dundas. —Michaela Chesin
