Richard Hurteau’s Candidate Statement For 2017 Millville Selectman Election


I have been a resident of Millville for the last 34 years and have extensive interaction in local affairs.

I joined the US Marine Corps at 17 years old during the Vietnam Conflict.

Although I was married at 20 years old for only 13 years, that union resulted in 4 fantastic children and 9 wonderful grandchildren.

I feel that it is vitally important to communicate openly and maintain a great relationship with the residents of Millville, listen objectively in the interests of the entire community, and that accessibility and openness should not be compromised for the sake of expediency or debate.


Community Involvement:

  • Currently serving as a member of the Planning Board and have served 32 years in various positions
  • Served as the Millville Building Inspector for 9 years
  • Currently serving as the Chairman of the Veteran’s Memorial Park
  • Currently serving as a member of the Council on Aging for the past 3 years
  • Currently serving as President of the Millville Senior Center for the past 2 years
  • Was a member of the Board of Directors of the Woonsocket Boys’ & Girls’ Club for 7 years
  • Currently serving as a member of the Farm Bureau
  • Currently serving as a member of the Massachusetts Retirees


My Priorities:

  • Seek to find new methods of improvements and projects that may add value and cost savings to our community and new businesses to increase our tax base
  • Create jobs for our residents
  • Lower residential property taxes


Career Experience:

  • Retired in 2004 as Director of Engineer of Massachusetts Correctional Institution, Norfolk Prison
  • Pursuing continuing education for renewal of Construction Superintendent License of 30 years
  • Built and managed an 87-unit complex for 9 years in Woonsocket, RI
