In one sentence, what do you hope to achieve if elected? Although New Britain has made great progress restoring its financial stability and attracting businesses, much work remains where I believe I can make a difference, including neighborhood relations, off-campus housing, blight and water issues.
In one sentence, what sets you apart from other candidates? My combination of extensive public service experience, coupled with a desire to “give back” to the City I was born and raised in, and my demonstrated ability to work with others on a bi-partisan basis.
