Biography

2019 League of Women Voters' Guide

Question 1: What are the one or two most critical issues in your precinct and/or the Town and how would you address them?
Question 2: Biographical data.

1. I am against the ballot override question. The way the question has been posed is very disingenuous and an insult to the voters. The voting body is intelligent enough to answer separate questions regarding the Baldwin and Driscoll schools. The Baldwin proponents are so desperate to move forward with Baldwin that they've forced a joint ballot question. Additionally, I am in favor of the town purchasing Newbury College and using it for classrooms. The proposed Baldwin school is the perfect example of a select board trying to fit a square peg into a round hole - it is a total planning failure. Thankfully, Newbury College has become available and is truly the perfect solution we have all been hoping for.

2. I am running for town meeting because I'm extremely concerned with the way the town is being run. Our taxes are projected to rise 30% over the next ten years. Unacceptable.
