I have been a Newtown resident for the past 11 years and am delighted to call this town my home. Originally from Massachusetts, I spent some time in New York before my husband and I settled here in 2009.
I have two young children in the Newtown School System where I have spent much time volunteering. I am thrilled with the quality of education they have received thus far. I also served as assistant coach for the Newtown Youth Cheer team for three years. Professionally, I have been in sales for most of my career. My most memorable sales job was with Altec Industries selling hydraulic bucket trucks and digger derricks to municipal line crews.
I am running for Legislative Council because I feel I have what it takes to serve the needs of this community, I want to see Newtown thrive and prosper by embracing positive changes while maintaining the values the town was built on.
I believe in less spending and a balanced budget. I believe that each community member should have their voices heard. I do not believe that the local or federal government should supersede a person’s right to make decisions that they feel are best for themselves and their families. I will advocate for those that feel they are not being heard and for those that desire more accountability from local leaders.
I welcome the many newcomers and look forward to collaborating with residents new and old to make the town the best that it has ever been, both for ourselves and for generations to come.
I am honored to be nominated for Legislative Council. I am asking for your vote in November because I am confident I will be a strong and objective servant of the community. I have a strong moral compass and will do what is in the best interest of all residents living in this great town.
