Results Through Leadership

Running for Re-Election on March 5th

Actual Results: Regional Connections Matter

Many of the issues we face as a municipality don't stop at our borders. Having strong regional connections with other municipalities and regional organizations is critical for success.

I represent Wellesley on several regional bodies including:

  • The Metro Area Planning Council (MAPC), where I was elected by my regional peers to the Executive Board 
  • The MBTA Advisory Board, for which I am the Treasurer and sit on the Executive Committee, Chair the Budget & Audit Committee, am Vice Chair of the Commuter Rail Committee, and sit on the Climate and Clean Energy Committee
  • The Metrowest regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) Advisory Board, where I reconstituted and now chair the Audit and Finance Committee 
  • I am an active member of the Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA), and regularly attend webinars and in person conferences, strengthening networks with neighboring Select Board members and municipal staff.

I have brought Wellesley's perspective to regional engagement in the Federal "Safe Streets for All" grant program with a regional award of $2mm for a Safety Action Plan, to discussions on MBTA Communities Act compliance, and to creating trails connections between municipalities across the region.

Engaging in this regional work puts Wellesley at the table, and makes me an effective advocate for our town's needs. This is no small investment of time and I am seeking a second term to continue this important work

It was great to see so many colleagues I have worked with over the past several years at the recent MMA annual conference
