The Marlborough Republicans

Selectman Candidate

Joe Asklar - Selectman Candidate

​My name is Joe Asklar and it’s my honor to be a candidate for Second Selectman. My wife Carol and I have lived in Marlborough for 42 years where we have raised 3 wonderful children, Joe, Corinne and Kevin. All of our children currently reside in Marlborough with their families and Carol and I are the proud grandparents of 7 amazing kids. Having our children pass through the school system and now our grandchildren, I am a strong believer in an excellent school system which is a strong foundation for growing children.

I have served over 40 years of public service as the former Chairman of the Economic Development Commission and currently as the town’s Fire Marshal. My Duties as Fire Marshal has given me hands-on contact with many of the residents of our great town. As a member of the Marlborough Volunteer Fire Department, public safety is important to me as well as my fellow first responders.

Since 1979, I have been the President and CEO of Marlborough Plastics, a successful business here in town, which originated in 1958. Having these successful business skills will be important in creating strong economic growth within Marlborough and I feel confident that I have the experience and knowledge to make it happen.
