I was elected to the Northampton City Council in 2013 representing Ward 3. I was re-elected in 2015, and chosen by my colleagues to serve as Council Vice-President in 2016.
Below are some of the projects I have worked on:
Democracy and Good Government
Environment and Economy
I was born in Springfield in 1980 and went to public schools in the Valley, graduating from UMass in 2002. My mother and father were married at St. Mary's Church and lived for a number of years on Isabella Street. When my parents separated, my mother and I moved to Amherst, where I grew up.
In my professional life, I have worked for many years with nonprofit organizations such as Common Cause on issues of campaign finance reform, ethics and government transparency and continue to do that kind of work today as an independent consultant.
Before joining the City Council, I was a board member of the Ward 3 Neighborhood Association and the Northampton Living Wage Coalition. I live on Day Avenue.
