for Town Council
“As a very active 26 year resident, I am deeply aware of what needs preserving and what needs improving in Pound Ridge. We need to ensure that newer residents with young families feel they made a good decision in moving here, while giving our long-time residents a reason to stay. That’s a community. Our tax dollars are precious and all of our homeowners need to trust that we are spending them wisely. I have the ability to bring people together, LISTEN to them and make necessary changes in a cost-effective way, so I feel well-suited to once again serve ALL our residents, not just one constituency or another.”
