Issues

These are the primary areas of focus for me as a Ward Councilor. 

Local Representation is Critical

Local Representation is direct representation. This is the voice of the people.


Managing Growth and Our Future

Newton's proximity to a thriving Boston, access to transportation and its quality of life create pressure to grow to accommodate more people.  Evolving demographics are changing the size and makeup of the average household with implications for housing.


Keep Our Schools Strong and Exercise Fiscal Responsibity

Newton's General Fund budget is about $400 million.  Over 50% is for schools. We have demands to maintain and upgrade our infrastructure.  Our budget increases are slightly outpacing inflation.  We need to maintain and grow our commercial tax base to help increase overall revenue.


Environment

Newton's green space and access to recreation like biking and long walks are key factors in our quality of life.
