“As a resident since 1971, I am running for the town council because of the pride I have for my hometown. Growth has and will happen, but how that growth occurs will affect the quality of life that we all experience.

Most importantly, we all live here and need to be a community working together for the greater good. I look forward to being inclusive and responsive to the needs of our town.”
