There are many reasons to vote for Anthony Donato for Councilor at Large on November 7th.
If you live in East Watertown, Anthony was a neighbor of yours for years on
Hillcrest Circle. His mother Eleanor Sullivan Donato lived on Upland Road for many more than that.
The Sullivan Playground in Coolidge Square is named for Lt. Paul J. Sullivan,
Anthony’s uncle, who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1968. These are reasons
for Eastenders to vote for Anthony and also a very good reason for Veterans to
vote for him.
If you are a Senior and have attended the Annual Senior Citizens Cookout put on
by the Watertown Rotary Club, Anthony served two years as President of the
Rotary Club, and served on the Senior Citizens Cookout Committee for 10 years.
That is a reason for seniors to vote for Anthony.
If your child goes to the Watertown Boys & Girls Club, Anthony is the 2nd Vice
President of the Club and has been on the Board for 5 years. That is a very good
reason for many parents to vote for Anthony.
If your children attend Watertown Public Schools, Eleanor Sullivan Donato taught
at the West Junior, Cunniff and the Middle School for 31 years. She also brought
the Pennies for Patients program to Watertown for the benefit of cancer patients.
Brian Donato, Anthony’s brother, is a Special Ed teacher at Watertown Middle
School. Additionally, Brian has worked at Camp Pequossette for 26 years, 10 as
Assistant Director and two of them as Director of the Camp.
Anthony is a Trustee of the Lt. Paul J. Sullivan Scholarship Fund. Additionally, as
part of the Rotary Club, he served as Chairman of the Scholarship Committee.
Hundreds of thousands dollars have been given to students over the years, most
of which went to Watertown students, which is another a good reason for
everyone to vote for Anthony.
Anthony served on the Finance Committee of St Luke’s church for 6 years.
His wife Kelly has served on our Zoning Board of Appeals since 2014.
His father, Tony, dedicated countless hours to Watertown Youth Soccer and
Watertown Youth Basketball.
His Uncle, Tom Sullivan, spent 36 years as Recreation Director in Watertown.
Tom was highly regarded by parents and children alike.
Anthony comes from one of Watertown’s finest families and they are very
humble. The Donato family’s contributions to Watertown are long standing and
have had a huge impact.
Please consider Anthony Donato for Councilor at Large so that he can continue
I am writing all this because you would never hear it from them.
