What differentiates you from the other candidates and/or board members?

I respect all of our candidates and board members and appreciate the time and energy they put into everything they already do for our town, and think our diverse range of experiences

One unique thing I bring to the table is a background in IT and technology. The upper levels of our Town government currently don’t have anyone with a strong tech background like mine, having worked in IT for over a decade. Technology is becoming more and more critical and engrained in all facets of our day-to-day, and we need someone who speaks that language and can help ensure that we’re spending the right money on the right things. One of the most critical skills in the IT field is the ability to solve complex problems while partnering with many different interested parties, and I plan to apply that collaborative problem solving mindset on the Select Board.

Over the past few years, I’ve also been the most frequent audience member at Select Board meetings. I’ve attended countless meetings of the Select Board and other committees and subcommittees, asking questions, seeking clarification, and making suggestions. My time at these meetings, working on elections, and sitting on the two boards I’m on have also let me meet and build relationships with people in many different departments within Town Hall, as well as with our state-level representatives.

I’m just an engaged, active resident with a vested interest in making sure that this town continues to flourish. I’m not a career politician, and I don’t aspire to become one – I have no future goals of running for any state or federal positions. My sole interest in this campaign is in serving the Town of Mansfield and its residents.
