It has been both my pleasure and my privilege to represent the people of the First Ward on the Westfield Town Council. Westfield continues to be the envy of other communities. We are a desirable place to live and raise a family, and a premier destination in the region for shopping, dining and entertainment. My family and I have been proud to call Westfield our home for 17 years. We enjoy its excellent school system, its vibrant and award-winning downtown and its charming neighborhoods. As a member of the Town Council, my focus has been, and will continue to be, to protect and preserve our exceptional quality of life.
Because I believe that I can continue to be an effective advocate for the residents of Westfield’s First Ward, I will be asking them for another term as their Councilman this November. During my current term, I have been available to and engaged with residents, and I have helped to manage the Town’s affairs responsibly. Most important, I have been responsive to the needs of my constituents, listening to their concerns, providing helpful information and assisting with the resolution of problems whenever practicable.
Westfield has faced unprecedented challenges over the past few years - natural, financial and otherwise – and we have overcome them together with the help of strong and capable leadership. If elected, I will continue my commitment to provide the local services that we deserve and have come to expect, in as cost-effective a manner as possible, and I will continue to aggressively advocate on behalf of the First Ward and all Westfield residents. I remain ready, willing and able to do the work necessary to maintain Westfield’s distinctive character and financial well-being, and I look forward to making our Town an even more special place to live.
