To the Editor:

As an educator and now homeowner, I would like to extend my gratitude to the Island Housing Trust, the selectmen, the town of Tisbury, Gino Mazzaferro, and to all others who contributed to the creation of the Lambert’s Cove affordable homes.

These beautiful and extremely efficient homes would likely win a national contest for cutting edge affordable housing.

I cannot imagine a better place to raise a child — a lovely home built with quality materials surrounded by woods to dream and explore in. We are so grateful to everyone who worked toward making these a reality. Thank you so very much.

Julie and Camille Brand
