The League of Women Voters of Amherst is again producing an election guide to help voters. Here are my answers to this year’s questions:
As a Town Council member, what needs of the town do you hope to address?
If re-elected, I will focus on moving the DPW and Fire Station projects forward, addressing our affordable and attainable housing crisis, reaching our climate action goals, and improving our roads and sidewalks.
What priorities will shape your vision regarding the future direction of the town’s landscape, infrastructure, and character?
The ideas that shape my vision include: focusing housing in areas that minimize impact on open space; creating dynamic, walkable, and attractive downtown and village centers; diversifying Amherst’s housing stock; and providing amenities that residents want in a community, like playgrounds, recreation, and community centers and events.
