My focus as a Selectman - Issues that are important to me

  • The planned Public Safety Building and the Main Street reconstruction project are extremely important for our Town. As a Selectman, I will help exercise responsible oversight of costs for these projects.
  • Our schools are very highly rated, and the School Committee and school administrators have been diligent in delivering high-quality programs while controlling costs. As a Selectman, I will work proactively with the schools to reinforce this success.
  • A number of Town boards and committees have empty seats, while voters wonder how decisions are made. As a Selectman, I will encourage our many qualified residents to join their neighbors by participating in Town government.
  • We value our open space and our recreational opportunities. As a Selectman, I will work to enhance these assets, consistent with Southborough’s Master Plan and Open Space and Recreation Plan.
  • Our seniors want to stay in Southborough, and young families want to move here. As a Selectman, I will work to find solutions to the housing challenges facing both generations.
