In one sentence, what do you hope to achieve if elected? I hope to be part of a transparent government that works to improve the lives of New Britain’s residents through choosing to invest in our schools, services to all neighborhoods, tax relief for those on fixed incomes and protecting our natural resources.
In one sentence, what sets you apart from other candidates? I like to talk to those on all sides and to listen to their thoughts and, as a person who wasn’t born here, I chose New Britain to be my home.
