Dear Wilmington residents,For those in Wilmington who don’t yet know Jomarie O’Mahony, I can only tell you that you’re missing out. I have had the pleasure of knowing Jomarie for five years, and each and every one of them was an absolute pleasure be it a professional or social encounter. One of the most famous “Good Guys” in town, Jomarie is well known for her leadership, organization, but above all, positivism. She has clarity, vision, and planning that go far beyond the ordinary, which is why I encourage all to consider and vote for Jomarie as Wilmington’s next Board of Selectman.I could touch on the fact as a busy mother Jomarie still found the time to help organize the largest charity in town. I could also touch on the fact that she’s personally dedicated hundreds of hours a year to volunteering, all while working full time as an attorney for children in the foster care system. But what I really want to point out is that despite hugely impacting our community by helping organize events like the Festival of Trees, Jomarie strives to do more; and for all the right reasons.Wilmington has an abundance of qualified people this year, each with their own idea of Wilmington’s future. Topics like working to develop senior housing, filling in commercial space, and continuing Wilmington’s education excellence are all planned, and are high on Jomarie’s list of things to do. The beauty of electing her is that she has decades of experience with navigating state and local bureaucracy as a public and private attorney, organizing and coordinating budgets, and handling large scale events and issues. She is experienced, seasoned, passionate, and capable. Jomarie has proven for years that she loves our town, and done so with a smile. Again, I urge all residents consider Jomarie this April.Sincerely,Representative David RobertsonLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter.

-Terming the Rohingya crisis a national one, opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday said it wants a national unity to face the problem instead of doing politic over the issue.”We don’t want to do politics over the Rohingya issue. We think it’s a national crisis and we’ll have to tackle the situation uniting the entire nation,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.He came up with the comments while speaking at a discussion programme arranged by BNP at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking its chairperson Khaleda Zia’s 10th ‘jail release’ day.The BNP leader said though the government had been playing a silent role over the Rohingya issue, it has now become vocal on the matter as the world community started reacting to it and putting pressure on Myanmar.Making their party’s position clear on the issue, Fakhrul said BNP wants Rohingyas to be given shelter for a temporary period, not permanently, on humanitarian grounds. “Give them food and shelter, and force the Myanmar government to take back its citizens.”He alleged that sending its citizens to Bangladesh by repressing them is an act of aggression by Myanmar against the country’s independence and sovereignty. “The government should take all necessary diplomatic efforts to force Myanmar to take back Rohingyas ensuring their dignity and citizenship.”The BNP leader said the government and its aides have again started a false campaign against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman as people are now taking preparation for the next general election. “There’ll be no use of carrying out propaganda against our leader (Khaleda) since people have given her a place in their hearts.”He alleged that the way Myanmar government is eliminating the Rohingyas, the same way the government is annihilating democratic forces in Bangladesh.Fakhrul alleged that the government is eliminating those who are taking position in favour of democracy and people in a planned way.
