I have been the town Supervisor for the past three and a half years. From snow plowing to paving, to law enforcement and disaster preparedness, to summer camp and youth activities, etc., town government has a core duty to serve the people, and I am proud of our many accomplishments. It’s my strong belief that we should operate in a proactive, rather than a reactive manner, and that takes a hands-on Supervisor with the knowledge and work ethic to get the job done.
As an artist, I bring a perspective that lends well to collaboration and creative problem solving. Germantown is exploding with new energy, and we need to find ways to encourage economic growth while preserving the town’s character. If on the board, I will strive to build community, focus on sound environmental strategies and housing issues as well as supporting all the work the parks and waterfront commission has been doing. I look forward to being able to give back to this town, which I care so deeply for.
My parents and grandparents all dedicated their lives to public service, and I’m eager to follow in their footsteps. The difficulty of this past year has further inspired me to do more for our town. Coming together with a shared purpose strengthens a community, and I see so many opportunities for that in Germantown. If elected, my focus would be on building bridges within the community, listening to folks’ ideas and concerns and working to make this a great place for everyone.
We care about building bridges, and that informs all the work we do. Our community is experiencing many changes, some exciting and some challenging. If elected, our approach will be to listen and act with integrity and transparency to move Germantown forward.
We believe in science and expertise. Doing everything we can to combat climate change is fundamental to our agricultural community. We will support all the hard work our Climate Smart, Solar, and Waterfront Committees are doing to bring Germantown into the twenty-first century.
A local economy is the lifeblood of any town. Our focus will be on supporting the update of local zoning laws and helping small, independent and locally owned businesses to thrive.
Our town is changing rapidly, and it needs a sensible strategy that supports economic opportunities for homeowners who live here, people who need an affordable place to live and the visitors who bring vitality to our town.
We’ll work to further open lines of communication with folks and keep you up to date on the work the board is doing through hosting Town Halls, creating an online community board, posting an annual report card and more.
