As a Realtor, I have been encouraging buyers for many years to move to Reading because I see our Town as one of the premier places to live in the state. We have a sought after school system, an emerging downtown marketplace, an involved citizenry, and a small town feel while also being very accessible to the workplace. For all these reasons and more, I want to continue the work of those who have served to help make Reading what it is today.
I feel very strongly about volunteering in the community and have had the pleasure of meeting some great people through my involvement in various community events and committees. I’m proud to have co-founded an annual charity event to benefit the Reading Veterans Memorial Trust Fund. The proceeds go toward helping decorate the more than 2000 graves of our servicemen and women in Reading with geraniums on Memorial Day. I also helped organize a successful charity run and fitness event held at the Reading Athletic Club and Grumpy Doyle’s to benefit One Fund Boston. And most recently, I am a volunteer on the working group charged with solving our space needs for Elementary/Early Childhood Education. As the parent of a R.I.S.E. pre-school child, this is a very important issue to me and an important issue for our Town moving forward.
Reading will have several projects being discussed in the near future as well as a comprehensive review our local bylaws and Town Charter. The decisions made on these projects today will be critical in making our great town even better. I believe that I can help in these important processes now and in the future, and I humbly ask for your support.
