Hello Friends! I want to let you all know, it’s official … the petitions are filed and I am the Democratic candidate for Haverford Township Board of Commissioners in Ward 7!!
It’s a big undertaking, and one that I’m very excited about. The fact is, I love Haverford Township and its amazing schools, safe streets and friendly neighbors. And that is exactly why I want to run: to be part of the next generation of leaders to help Haverford continue to thrive.
In addition to being a teacher for 25 years and current History Department Chair at The Haverford School, I’m also a swim coach, athlete, political activist and working mom. In each of these roles, I have gained skills that could benefit the community: I can listen, analyze information, build partnerships, set goals, and motivate others to action.
In terms of my priorities, I would like the Board of Commissioners to do more to help Haverford’s working families succeed, spur economic development, be accountable, protect our environment and promote inclusivity. But I expect to learn a great deal more from all of you about what you want from our local government.
The one thing I can promise, if I am elected: I will bring energy, discipline, humor and optimism to the post of 7th Ward Commissioner because, well, that’s just how I do things.
I look forward to meeting, talking, and working together!!
