Dear Editor,Robert Hayes, reporter and creator of the Wilmington Apple, pretty much summed it up at candidates night when he stated: “The perception out there is that selectman candidate Jonathan Eaton is the establishment’s candidate and the perception is that Robert Fasulo is the candidate of change.” Robert Hayes hit the nail on the head. This is absolutely true. I’ve personally talked with several hundred residents over the past few months and I know first hand that this is what people are feeling, this is what people are saying. As many of you know, I don’t follow the trend of endorsing a candidate every year and as a matter of fact, it’s been fifteen years since I supported a candidate for the office of Wilmington Board of Selectmen. But this year, there’s a candidate who truly stands out; Rob Fasulo is that candidate.One of the main reasons I’m supporting Rob Fasulo is that he will not be part of the status quo. While there is no doubt we will disagree on some things, fundamentally we’re on the same page. He’s an independent thinker, strong-willed and ethically minded when it comes to family and community. One of Rob’s best qualities is that he is a great communicator and the most important part of communication is actually listening to what the other person is saying. If elected to the board of selectmen, be rest assured that Rob will listen to each and every one of you so that we may provide a great quality of life to our children, our seniors and to every resident in Wilmington.Rob truly cares about the direction in which Wilmington is heading in regards to development and how it’s becoming out of control. Like most of us, he wants to keep our town from turning into an overdeveloped city–case and point–look at some of our surrounding towns. They were small towns not too long ago. In recent months I’ve observed on social media that people say they’ve moved from big cities to Wilmington so they can raise their kids in a small, safe community. People like myself who are lifelong residents are very concerned on how Wilmington has the potential to be overdeveloped. Rob would also like to maintain a small town feel. He cares about our future and he cares about how our tax dollars are spent.Rob Fasulo is a lifelong resident of Wilmington. He is a graduate of the Wilmington Public Schools and he went on to earn a degree in criminal justice and has made a career of serving the commonwealth in a law enforcement capacity. In addition to caring for the people in our town and state, he also cares deeply about the environment and shows his commitment by running a small local agricultural business that produces honey and maple syrup and is very involved in the Farmer’s Market on the town common selling the most fantastic honey and maple syrup products my family has ever had. Quite obviously food is one of my passions!Please join with me on Saturday, April 28, 2018 and cast a vote for Robert Fasulo for Wilmington Selectman in our upcoming town election. Remember every single vote is important and it makes a difference. It’s time to take back our town. Wilmington families first, Wilmington neighborhoods forever!Sincerely,Michael V.

Smartphone design just got taken to another level. Nubia, an associate company to Chinese telecommunications company ZTE, just unveiled the world’s first wearable smart phone at MWC 2019. The smartphone, (or is it a smartwatch?), named the Nubia Alpha, looks like something out of a sci-fi novel, and it’s a first step toward the wearable tech of the future. The design is a bit cumbersome, the gold a bit gaudy, but the execution is commendable. You can make and receive phone calls, take pictures, and decide to control it either with your fingers or a series of hand gestures–all from the water resistant band around your wrist. Check out more details on the design and functionality of it here. Nubia hasn’t announced a release date or set a price, but it has stated the phone will be available for purchase, it’s not just a concept. The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone CNET Asks 2:47 Tags Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Comments The Nubia Alpha wraps a phone around your wrist We have seen concepts and prototypes of wearable phones before.
