Why are you running for office?

I am running for office because I don’t want to complain about problems; I want to fix them. I want to push for solutions and collaborate with colleagues to get things done.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?

My district is very concerned with climate change issues. I will push for Massachusetts to adopt stronger clean energy policies, and to expand public transportation. I have specific plans to protect the Merrimack River, which runs through my district and is threatened with sewage overflows and PFAS contamination.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?

On the local level, we can recognize that most issues are non-partisan. Everyone wants clean water. Everyone wants clean air. We have to find consensus on how to achieve our goals. We can work together if we share ideas calmly and rationally.

Who is your hero?

My heroes are the local volunteers who give so much of their time to causes they care about.

What are your hobbies?

I joke that my hobby is laundry because it’s a relaxing thing to do at the end of a long day.

What is the most recent book you read?

The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See. Highly recommend!

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?

3 sons, ages 20, 18, 16

How can our readers get involved in your campaign?
