Like my parents, I was born and raised in Ward 2. I want to be your representative on Waltham's City Council. Our neighborhood, and City, are going through prosperous, but disruptive changes. I grew up playing at Lazazzero Playground and fishing in Hardy Pond, and I want the next generation of Ward 2 residents to have the same great experiences I had in our neighborhood.

I've made a career helping clinicians analyze and build technology to improve how they treat patients. Those same skills will be put to work as the City Councillor in Ward 2. I want to bridge the gap between neighbors and city government. Neighborhood and quality of life issues are my number one priority, and I believe our tax dollars should be invested in education, safety and infrastructure. I want to improve our streets, support our public safety services, mitigate traffic, keep a close eye on tax increases and property value, and ease the burden of the construction of the new Waltham High School at 554 Lexington Street, Piety Corner intersection and the 40B development on Winter Street.

As I ramp up to the Sept 17th preliminary election and hopefully the Nov 5th general, I am asked to answer questionnaires to show where we stand on issues and where opinions lie. Progressive Waltham sent each candidate a questionnaire and I thank them for posting this publicly and for the exposure to share my ideas. Here's mine:

First reading of WHS budget/loan approval

The City Council, at the August 5 special summer session, approved the first reading of the loan order to fund construction of Waltham High School at 554 Lexington Street. Bill attended and noted a significant amount of people in Ward 2 both for and against. The needs and concerns of abutters and neighbors will require a lot of attention from the next Ward 2 Councillor, and Bill is best suited for that role.
