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. They are largely the same issue: fiscal stability and the schools. We must provide adequate space and resources to educate our children - all our children, including those who move here in the future - which means building the new Baldwin school and renovating Driscoll, Pierce and, over time, the others. I fully support Question 1, which provides funding for Baldwin and Driscoll.

2. I have lived in Brookline 22 years. Our children attended Lawrence; our daughter graduated from BHS last year, and our son is a sophomore. After a career in finance I became the at-home parent when they were born. I also began writing and published several novels. I have a particular interest in fiscal issues and hope to focus on revenue, spending and the budget.
