“Newton helped raise me. From Temple Emanuel pre-K through Newton North, the schools prepared me for Harvard and MIT and for a young career in cybersecurity.
And the sense of service that animated so many of my role models – teachers, coaches, friends’ parents, and my own family – motivated my commission as an infantry officer in the Marine Corps, where I commanded platoons in Afghanistan and Panama.
I am proud to continue service as a city councilor-at-large, representing all Newton residents.”
Three issues to which I’m committed:
- Tripling investment in road improvement
- Walkable, affordable housing
- World-class education
Three reasons to trust my judgment:
- Make decisions empirically, not emotionally
- Make decisions regardless of political headwinds
- Understand & share Newton’s values
