Biography

2018 League of Women Voters' Guide

Question 1: What town wide issue affects your precinct the most and how would you address it?
Question 2: Biographical data.

1. The biggest issue affecting Precinct 14 also affects the entire town - the needs of the expanding student enrollment in our public schools. There will be two override questions on the ballot in May, one permanently increasing the tax levy and the other to fund the high school renovations and expansion. In future years we will face more operating overrides for school facilities operation and classroom expansion. Big question is how much is too much? Schools are important but so are other Town services. We must not loose sight of our ability to pay and the needs of all citizens in the Town.

2. Town Meeting since 1989. Advisory Committee since 1997. School Committee 1988-1997, Chair 91-03. MBA high honors Boston University. Business manager of public and special education schools. Former associate director Harvard College Observatory. Self employed construction manager for projects large and small. Resident of Brookline for over 50 years.
