Local government that works for us.

Our city government is only as innovative, effective, and responsive as the people we elect – and I’m ready to work hard for my neighbors as an At-Large City Councilor.

What Inspires Me

Three things inspired me to step up this year to represent my neighbors on our City Council:

There are some big shoes to fill, so we need new leaders to step into them – people who understand the history and context of this city but can also bring fresh ideas for its future.

We need people who are ready to do the hard work – who will ask smart questions and make tough decisions. I’m ready, willing, and able.

We are still working through multiple crises, so our City Council needs someone who understands public health, economic development, and how they interact.

My experience in those areas and broad perspective from global policy work will be a huge asset as we navigate the new challenges and opportunities ahead. I know how local government works, and I’ve seen great ideas for solving problems in other places that I can bring to the conversation here in Beverly.

Serving as a member of the Charter Review Committee has motivated me to get more involved.

Studying the charter and talking with committee members and neighbors has taught me how well-crafted our system of self-governance is. The process has shown me the importance of each elected official in maintaining the balance of powers here, and helped me see ways I could help make our city government more transparent, inclusive, and forward-looking.
