To the Editor:
In 2015, I was honored to be elected to the Town Council. I have truly enjoyed serving and I am now running for re-election on the Democratic slate.
My reasons for running remain essentially the same. I am passionate about the future of our town.
I believe that we should have high expectations and never think that this is “just Plainville.”
Our citizens deserve up-to date infrastructure, strong public schools, and quality services. These include resources such as a vibrant public library, comprehensive senior programs, and recreational opportunities.
Regarding the latter, I support the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail based on a final design which is collaboratively developed.
With smart planning and budgeting, I believe that we can continue to maintain and grow all that our town offers to individuals, families, and businesses.
I also endorse town efforts to be proactive on specific quality of life matters such as the hard water issue and traffic concerns.
My first term has been a positive learning experience.
I have taken the time to review and research the issues and ask questions that deepen understanding. I support projects, such as the school building improvements, which move Plainville forward. My appointments as liaison to the Committee on Aging and Conservation Commission are responsibilities that I take seriously. I have also worked to be responsive to those who contact me.
Thank you very much for your consideration as we prepare for local elections on Nov. 7.
