The above quote is a bold statement by a candidate for a city election - yet the sentiment resonates with my being.
I like being a City Councilor and take the responsibility very seriously. It is an honor to serve the community.
Desiring to “to give back and to leave something,” my commitment to public service in Newburyport began in 1999–
As an original member of the newly formed Youth Commission I helped invigorate our community’s effort towards providing the outstanding Youth Services we have today.
As a two term Ward 5 Councilor (2004 – 2007) I was directly involved in the effort to save the 100+ acres of Common Pasture on Hale Street. My effort stopped the building of five industrial buildings which led to the space being open forever.
As a Counselor At Large (2014 – 2015) have been committed to:
Finding a resolution to preserving an open waterfront (something I have been committed since my first term on council in 2004)
Seeing the best and biggest parking garage we can have come into fruition with the least amount of impact on the abutters.
Passing of the 40R zoning district
Finding resolution to the Plum Island sewer debacle and sewer odor issue.
Finally seeing a Senor Community Center come into being!
As a member of the community, my interest and involvement in the community has always been intense and a priority. I look forward to continuing to serve Newburyport in an elected capacity.
Thank you for your interest - your help will allow me to continue to serve in 2016.
