In 2015 I ran for the Newington Town Council and was elected; I am running for my second term.
If elected, I hope to work with the Council to continue to guide Newington through these difficult economic times to ensure the economic viability of our town into the future.
I believe I am a fiscal conservative, someone who can work collaboratively with others, and bring a common-sense approach to Town Government.
