Why are you running for an elected office in Goffstown? I am running for the elected office in the town of Goffstown because I believe that I can bring to the table, what the residents of Goffstown deserve. As a resident and taxpayer, I feel that it is part of my civic responsibility to serve the community that I call home. When my family and I bought our home in Goffstown, we were looking for a community to stay in forever. We wanted a place that had a quality school system, strong economic opportunities, well-maintained roads, accessible municipalities, community oriented public spaces, and most importantly, a
strong sense of community. We were fortunate to find all of those things here in Goffstown and are proud to call Goffstown our home. After we moved to Goffstown, we quickly sought to get more involved with the local community. After joining the Goffstown Lions Club we started meeting a variety of diverse Goffstown residents. Volunteering throughout town has taught me that as a community we are diverse in our opinions and views, but we all share the same commonality that we are proud to be residents of Goffstown and seek what’s best for our community. I have not lived in this town my whole life, but I am committed to living here for the rest of my life. I truly care about what happens in Goffstown and I hope to maintain our legacy while helping all residents get more involved in our progression. I believe that my specific skill set would be best utilized on the Board of Selectmen. I want to offer up a new voice for the community, a fresh perspective to progress, and a committed stance on well-informed and thought out decisions. As your next Selectwoman, I plan to work hard to make sure the many reasons we all chose this community as home will continue to foster positivity and growth that makes Goffstown a place where people want to visit, live, and stay.
Within your authority as an elected official, what issues will you be addressing to improve our community?
As your voice on the selectboard, I will be a receptive,
