I am so appreciative of the Greenwich Democrat's endorsement as candidate for the Board of Selectmen!  I’m humbled when I think of those who have served before, and I’m proud and honored to be part of this impressive slate
of candidates. Bill and I make a great team, I am thrilled to support him, and we are ready to run this race!  

        The time is right.  Since moving to Greenwich in 2006, I’ve immersed myself in community service on a number of nonprofits and boards — the PTA Council, League of Women Voters, Junior League and Community Centers, Inc.— and the RTM. So, I’m seasoned and well versed on the issues our Town faces and excited to take it to the next level. I have professional experience as a policy analyst and mediator. You can be assured I’ll listen to every perspective, balance all interests and work as a servant leader for the whole of Greenwich.  

       And the time is right for Greenwich Democrats. We offer this Town
a holistic vision, as leaders who will support our schools, environment, essential services and infrastructure while maintaining our quality of life and keeping it affordable. We will protect the interests of our youngest residents, our oldest, and everyone in between. We embrace diversity, equality and inclusion. We know what good, effective and efficient government looks
like and we value open and accessible public process. 

       We are fortunate to live in this wonderful town. And I couldn't feel more fortunate to serve it. Together we can make this a Greenwich we all deserve!
