A Stronger Community Together
I'm honored to be running for reelection as the Marlborough City Council, Ward One. The global COVID-19 pandemic presented numerous challenges during my first term, and I am grateful I had the opportunity to work with my colleagues in making sure the residents of Marlborough had the support they needed during this difficult period. Public health concerns certainly remain, and many of our residents have had to face significant economic challenges as a result of lost wages. A number of resources exist in our city and I was happy to make those connections to services over the over the past few years.
I am a social worker (MSW) and a leader who has been engaged in statewide social justice campaigns for the past 10 years. I am the Executive Director of a non-profit organization, and in this role, I work in coalition with other leaders who are building stronger communities that honor and value all people. I draw from my professional experience and training when meeting the needs of Marlborough residents and when making decisions as a member of City Council.
I've lived in Marlborough for almost 30 years. My three children are graduates of our public school system and together, we participated in many of the community activities our city has to offer. I ran a girl scout troop for over 10 years and was the Marlborough Girl Scout Coordinator and Cookie Coordinator for several of those years. My family participated in softball, baseball and football team activities and also participated in the school band program. These activities bring neighbors together and build a stronger community.
Other activities I'm proud of include organizing a free summer lunch program for our community's children for several years. I deeply appreciate the generosity of local residents and businesses when we work together to meet the needs of our community.
I look forward to this opportunity to represent my neighbors in City Council for a second term and I hope to have your vote!
