Some of you may already know who I am, but for those who don’t, my name is Michelle Kearney. I am a lifelong Abington resident and am running for the open seat on the Town Planning Board.
After graduating from AHS in 2008, I attended Quincy College before transferring to Suffolk University where I graduated, with honors, a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Legal Studies. I’ve spent many years working as a paralegal; I have experience with the Town’s site plan approval process through the Planning Board and also the ZBA; and I am more than familiar with the Town’s bylaws & charter.
I believe that the Boards representing our Town need new perspectives from persons knowledgeable of the inner workings of the Town. I also believe it is equally, if not more, important that the Town considers the wants & needs of lifelong residents just as much as they consider and value commercial & industrial development.
If elected, I want to ensure that the residents are heard and to help guide development within the Town so it is in the best interest of all parties involved.
If you have any questions, or want to ask a question, please feel free to message me on here, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (781) 519-4810.
