Biographical Information

Why are you running for this office? What are your top priorities?

Candidate for Re-Election
Relevant Experience Town Clerk. School Committee. Town Meeting Member. Business and Non-Profit Leadership experience.
I want to serve the Town.

My experience as the Town Clerk and business experience in project management and strategic planning positioned me to adapt to the rapidly changing Elections legislation. We implemented a plan that ensured every voter had an opportunity to vote safely, every vote counted and our election workers were safe.

We had record voter turn-out in several elections. We pivoted to supporting Virtual Town Meetings. And we supported many other administrative functions. This was a team effort of the Town Clerk staff, the many elections workers and myself.

My top priority is adapting elections operations to comply with new legislation and to improve voter accessibility. I also plan to improve the use of technology in the office and enhance customer service to the community.
