Nick Grabbe, former Charter Commission member and former editor of the Amherst Bulletin, endorsed me on the blog A Better Amherst last week.
He writes: “There are many excellent candidates for Amherst’s new Town Council, but only one I feel qualified to endorse.
If you have met Mandi Jo Hanneke, or heard her speak, you may not need me to tell you why she should be part of the Town Council. But if you’ve seen her lawn signs and said “Mandi Jo?” let me tell you about my two years of working closely with her…
I have never worked with anyone who possessed such a combination of brainpower, industriousness, collegiality, organization, attention to detail, independent thinking, adaptability and stamina. She’s a “group process rock star,” in the words of Andy Churchill, who chaired the Charter Commission, which Mandi and I served on.”

Thank you, Nick, for the strong endorsement and kind words!
