This November, Melrose enters its next phase, electing a new Mayor as well as local leaders. I’ve been a volunteer, a booster and an advocate since moving here in 2005. Is it time to do more? Here’s my thought process.
Step 1: Reflect upon what I could bring to Ward 1. An active citizen currently on the Energy Commission, I served on the Melrose Cultural Council (2008 – 2014) and the High School Site Council (2008 – 2011). I’m all about creating connections and maximizing opportunities.
