Having served on the Boards of Selectman and Finance, and serving on various appointed committees, I would appreciate the opportunity to now work for you as a member of the RTM.


I am strongly committed to open and transparent government, something I believe has suffered during the pandemic and video meetings of Town Boards & Agencies.


I am strongly committed to improving and maintaining Town infrastructure – ROADS! and Town buildings Deferred maintenance equals more costly repairs.


I have always been committed to smart/ conservative spending.  Examining Town department budget and project requests for what they are and funding to the appropriate level of the need.
