I am honored to serve my neighbors in Ward 7 on Northampton City Council and look forward to the opportunity to continue this work!
When I was elected to City Council in fall of 2019, I could never have imagined what my first term would look like. A pandemic and a profound social movement forced us to re-imagine how we meet, how we govern, how we care for each other and what it means to be in a community. During this time, I have met with so many of you virtually and heard your concerns about safety, equity, COVID-19 testing and vaccine access, the climate emergency, protecting and reinvigorating our villages of Florence and Leeds, and so much more. It has been an honor to advocate for Ward 7 during this unprecedented time and I hope to earn your vote to continue this work into 2022 and beyond!
I fell in love with Northampton as an undergraduate student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We moved to Leeds 12 years ago because we couldn’t think of a better place to raise a family. Every day I am reminded of the natural beauty, history, and community of our city — especially in our villages of Leeds and Florence.
One of my goals is to demystify the workings of municipal government and make it a more accessible tool for the people it was designed to serve. As your City Councilor, my job will be to listen, ask the right questions, seek out the answers, and bring them back to you in clear, concise ways.
I love calling Ward 7 home and look forward to serving our community in a new way. I can’t wait to hear more about the issues that are most important to you!
