As the election approaches I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my platform to the residents of Southborough. I am Jeffrey Rosenberg, 44 years old, a father, a husband, a volunteer, a civic leader, a businessman, and an educator.

My wife and I have a family of four children ages 9 – 15. Our home is an open place of discussion, education and family values. You will see us at school functions, sports, town events or just playing in the back yard. We make family our number one priority whether it’s a trip in the RV to new places or a quiet meal at home; family is where community starts. I value family in all that I do.

As a volunteer you will find me working hard on the Southborough CERT / MRC team, providing First Aid, directing traffic, responding to community events as well as disasters. I am a licensed EMT, a member of the Cert Executive Board and most recently the head of CERT and MRC of Southborough Inc. a 501c3 corporation to support CERT/MRC and the community. I also, through the Masons and with my Masonic Lodge, raise money for children and other worthy causes. I have been Master of Norfolk Lodge in Needham. Giving my time freely to my neighbors and community is a core value.

As a Civic leader I have testified before our state legislature and assisted in drafting, proposing, passing or defeating bills. As stated above I volunteer my time to the town. I work on campaigns and elections on a regular basis and believe as Justice Robert H. Jackson stated “It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.” And as such you find me here running for Selectman.
