CAMPAIGN CRASH PARTY FRIDAY MARCH 4TH 7P-11P AT ITALO AMERICAN CLUB
THANK YOU, SUPPORTERS! BUT WE'RE NOT DONE!
The election did not turn out the way we had hoped, but I want to take this moment to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the past few months of this campaign.
There are so many people to thank, I am afraid I will leave someone out, but here goes. To my co-chairs and all of you who were on my team, donors, those of you who helped me at the polls, let me put signs on your property, helped with the various events and especially those who worked so hard every day, you have my heartfelt thanks. My message of local government lacking diversity in Leadership was well-received in many places. I feel confident the majority of voters in town agree with the fact that
we won't have a truly 'welcoming Wellesley', until leadership roles are held by people of diverse ethnicities.
Once again thank you all, and remember all of the candidates that really speak to your vision of making Wellesley a better community, and then help them succeed in those efforts.

FINANCIAL COMMon SENSE
One of the many responsibilities of the Select Board is to oversee the town budget. I bring financial common sense: Balancing the budget, avoiding overspending for the future of Wellesley & understanding the compromises neccesary to make today.
I'm a 13 year resident and community advocate. I was elected to the WHA Board of Commisioners, and appointed to the town's D.E.I. Taskforce. Many of the students that I coach live in housing or have experienced housing instability. Housing is at the intersection of everything I care about in Wellesley. From the environment, to transportation, to equality.
SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINeSSES
Our small business community is starting to rejuvinate itself, evident by the increase of new business openings. One of my visions for Wellesley is a vibrant shopping area of town that would be visited widely. Town government should make sure businesses have the tools to not only survive, but also surpass any dream.
ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY
I am committed to being an active member of the Wellesley Community, which is indicated by my years of participation as an elected, appointed , and volunteer commitee member.
