I am delighted to be joining Wellesley’s Board of Selectmen! A very sincere thank you to all of my supporters who voted for me in this election.
I could not have done this without the dedication of my campaign manager, Stacy Braatz; my senior advisor, Wendy Paul; my treasurer, Todd Himstead; and committee members Phyllis Theermann, Matthew McKay and Christine Mizzi.
Thank you to Becca Cahaly and Eunice Groark for simply being the best yard sign wranglers in town!
Thank you to my advisory board who spent hours talking with me as I prepared to run for this election.
Thank you to the countless board members, department heads, Town Meeting Members and friends who spent hours and hours and hours in conversation relaying to me what matters to Wellesley and to them. To my friends who supported my campaign with endorsements, contributions, hosting yard signs, and holding signs at polling places in the baking heat and the rain.
Finally I would like to thank my husband, children, and extended family for their unwavering support.
It takes a dedicated, hardworking campaign team to run a successful race; I have been humbled by the support of my team.
Thank you to my opponents for a race gracefully run. I am truly better prepared for this role after having engaged in conversation and discussion with these fine women.
I commit to working hard to serve Wellesley in these coming six months, to listening carefully and deliberating thoughtfully, and to valuing all perspectives as we chart a path forward together. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and look forward to talking with Wellesley’s residents.
