Track Record

You and your family count on local government to provide Westfield with many vital services. You also need to make every tax dollar count. It’s a tricky balance and one I take seriously as your city councilor.

My record in office and my words back this up. I voted in favor of last year’s 0% tax increase when I thought we could afford it. I also staunchly opposed harmful cuts to our schools, the rail trail, and other important projects and services needed to keep our city moving forward.

It’s been a pleasure to serve you as your city councilor these past two years. I wish to continue fighting for all the important services you benefit from and making sure your tax dollars are spent wisely. I respectfully ask for one of your seven at-large votes this November 7th.
