🗹 Why I'm Running?

  • Community Service: I have been involved in local charities and community service my entire adult life and want to give back to the town of Reading.
  • Family & Education: My children love going to the library – I want to assist the library to continue to be as beneficial to our kids and community as possible.
  • Fiscally Responsible: We have limited financial and town resources, so it is important that the town is as efficient as possible with OUR Reading tax dollars.  Costs are skyrocketing in every facet of life; the town of Reading needs to do everything possible to minimize raising the taxes of its residents.
  • Transparency & Examine Policies: Important to review policies in an effort to improve transparency in some areas and have them in line with how other committees are run. For example:
    • CORI’s are required for all parents who want to volunteer or coach in town, but the library does not require CORI’s for non-parents who want to volunteer or conduct programs at the library
    • Other town meetings are all recorded, some of which are conducted at the library. However, the BOLT meetings are not.

There might be perfectly good reasons for the above policies, but they need to be discussed and examined.

  • Library is a Sacred Place: It is meant for learning, fostering our children’s development and growth as well as representing our community’s shared values.  My goal is to work with the library and BOLT members to ensure we continue to meet those objectives.
