In Her Words
I am running as a Democrat candidate. I’m a collaborator and a brainstormer by nature.
What are the top issues in Rocky Hill?
1. Strategies for reinvesting in our water infrastructure.
2. Scaled back or checked development that Rocky Hill residents would see as appropriate and desirable.
3. Traffic control, especially a blinking red traffic light at the four-way stop at the corner of Princeton and Crescent avenues. Too many drivers interpret the STOP signs as a mere suggestion.
I don’t have all the solutions to Rocky Hill’s present challenges. I do offer to bring a fresh perspective and energy to the conversation to help solve and manage.
Why are you running for Rocky Hill Borough Council?
I want to contribute to keeping Rocky Hill a special place to call home, and help enhance the resident experience. My skill set as a Realtor — listening, exploring, examining, discussing, striving for consensus, and project management — hopefully will serve the council and residents well.
What do you love most about Rocky Hill and why?
I’m a fairly new resident (2018) and consider myself lucky to live here! I adore this little hamlet for its neighborly community, and for its variety of attributes — a downtown, quiet suburbs, parks/recreation, history, convenience to day-to day needs, quality schools, and sanctuary feel. I’m also a walker, and just love all the pedestrian-friendly options right out my front door! ■
