My Top 3 Priorities

  • Traffic, Parking and Traffic Hazards. Innovate ways to increase thoroughfares, increase parking near businesses, and to identify and propose safety upgrades
  • Housing. Adhere to the general plan and identify low impact areas for state required zonings and future development.
  • Keeping our Local Police. Work and maintain our town budget to meet the needs of our town police services.
