Thank you for electing me to serve on the Nashua Board of Public Works for the past four years. As a Nashua native I am proud of our wonderful city. I am excited and honored to represent the interests of all the residents of Nashua. We must continue to work openly and collaboratively to provide outstanding services and to safeguard taxpayer funds, so that spending does not exceed available resources within each fiscal budget year. I ask for your vote to re-elect me to represent the Nashua citizens for the 4 year-term on November 5, 2019 in order to continue serving all residents of Nashua
I have over 25 years of experience as a skilled, innovative and motivated business professional. I was born and raised in Nashua. My wife, Martha and I live in Nashua and raised our two daughters here.

My priorities and beliefs include:
• Nashua residents deserve strong representation on the Board of Public Works.
• Nashua must continue to be a great place to live, work and raise a family.
• We must remain steadfast in taking care of all aspects of the City’s infrastructure; including roads, sewers, parks, sanitation landfill and waste water treatment facility.
• Nashua must focus on the needs of all city residents.
I have served the City of Nashua for the past 8 years (2 terms) as a Commissioner on the Board of Public Works. I believe strongly in giving back to the community in which one resides. Serving on the Board of Public Works has been an honor and has allowed my to contribute in various ways to make Nashua a better place to live, work and play. Some examples of accomplishments, approved by our board include: 5 year paving program which, when completed, will cover over 75 miles of paved roads in Nashua. Replaced all street lights with LED bulbs which will save the City in electricity costs. Constructed Phase 3 of the landfill, providing an additional 10 years of usable air space. Upgrading all wastewater pump stations. Upgrading sidewalks throughout the city. New playground equipment at the Thornton Road Tot Lot. Construction of a new Greeley Park Boat Ramp to begin shortly. These are just a few recent examples of accomplishments that have been under the jurisdiction of our board.
As a small business owner, I bring over 30 years of experience in operating and managing a health care facility. In my opinion, the Board of Public Works is an efficient check and balance system between the city employees and the taxpayers. We attempt to find common ground between the needs of the city and the cost to the taxpayer. After spending the last 8 years on the Board of Public Works, I continue to gain experience and practical knowledge which guides me in the decision making process.
Please re-elect me to the Board of Public Works so I can continue to make Nashua a better place to live, work and play through better streets, infrastructure, parks and recreation, wastewater treatment, solid waste and recycling.
The Division of Public Works cares for the very foundation of our city: providing clean, well-maintained streets and parks, efficient snow and trash removal, and other services vital to the health and beauty of Nashua. The Board of Public Works provides oversight of these critical services, being an important liaison between taxpayers and Nashua government. I am running for the Board of Public Works to represent taxpayers in how our tax dollars are being used to the benefit of the entire city, to make it and keep it clean and beautiful.
I have traveled extensively and lived in a number of locales, both in the US and abroad. I have had the privilege of living and working with people representing diverse cultures and ways of thinking. I believe that my education and life experience make me uniquely qualified to represent the interests of Nashua’s diverse population. I know how to listen to all sides of an issue and will work hard to bring the parties to consensus.
Though we are somewhat older than most parents of young children, my husband and I are glad to be raising our son (now 3 years old) in a city like Nashua. We love our neighborhood and its proximity to many great parks, and we take advantage of many activities and events available city-wide. Since we enjoy the amenities and advantages of living in Nashua, I feel we have a responsibility to participate, in some way, in preserving these things for the future.
