General statement: Hello Hopkinton! I am running for Parks and Rec again! I really have enjoyed working with this amazing commission and getting great programs out to our community. I realize these are unprecedented times, but I have confidence that our amazing Parks and Rec Department and our town will work together to best serve all the members of our community. We will adapt and adjust to this new normal and will offer up educational and recreational opportunities for our community.

I have loved working on this commission and will hopefully continue to work for the town. I really want to get this dog park open, and I want us to have music on the common this summer! I have much work to do and will continue to represent the town and its interests. I am hoping to have your support this election!
