I have experience in large and small business management, federal government, state government, education, event management, and journalism. I hold a BS in Political Science, and a Masters in Business Administration.
Each Alderman--or Alderwoman--represents the best interests of the citizens of Nashua; and in my case, more specifically, the citizens residing in Ward 8. The Board of Aldermen is the legislative body of Nashua, overseeing all city government functions and insuring finances are available to provide for all essential city services.
The state is not providing enough financing to adequately fund our schools and retirement systems for all city employees. This has resulted in higher property taxes and difficulties in budgeting. And we need more funding for infrastructure.
1. Help develop the passenger rail system in Nashua to connect with Boston and Manchester. 2. Provide adequate funding for our schools K through 12 AND introduce city-wide pre-K. 3. Improve the city infrastructure, especially in support of pedestrian and bicycle access and safety; and help to develop the Nashua Center for Performing Arts.
There is a significant opportunity to develop and provide for several solar energy fields. And we must address the need for various types of housing for all income levels; but in so doing we must maintain the integrity of existing neighborhoods.
My job is to work for the people of Nashua. I have no ties to corporations or other organizations or entities.
