Three years ago I had the honor of being elected by the residents of Abington to the Board of Health.
It has been my privilege to serve our residents in that capacity, and I would like to continue to do so. With that in mind, I formally announce my intention to seek re-election in this April’s town elections.
When I first ran for the board of health, my goal was to increase the board’s transparency. I accomplished this by working with Abington CAM to have our meetings recorded and available. I created a Facebook presence for our board to keep residents informed. Most recently, working again with Abington CAM, I began hosting a weekly “Health Department Roundtable” to keep people informed of local developments related to the ongoing pandemic.
It has been my privilege to work with the other members of the board, and to work alongside the incredible members of the Health Department. As a member of the board, I have worked hard to foster a strong working relationship with the Health Department which has benefitted the town immensely.
For these reasons, I will be humbly asking to receive one of your two votes to continue serving on the Board of Health on April 24th.
