Yesterday, I filed a "Declaration of Candidacy" with the Portsmouth canvasser's office, and I'm running for Town Council as an endorsed Democrat.
I made the decision to run because I want to give back to my community. I’m a progressive who cares about education, our environment, and the local economy. I just retired after a 22-year career in business – after a seven-year stint teaching at the college level – and I have expertise and perspectives to share. I want to work with our elected officials, our exceptional town staff, and all my neighbors to help move Portsmouth forward.
