Public safety and health is always top priority. Because of concerns about COVID-19/ coronavirus, many public events have been cancelled, and many scheduled in-person public campaign activities have been suspended.
However, I have instituted regular “online office hours” every Saturday from 3:00-4:00 p.m., via Zoom. If the discussion lasts longer, I’m happy to stay on. You can register to connect here:
See below for events / locations where I’ll be available to talk. I want to hear from you!

Neighborhood Informational Party
A group of neighbors hosted a listening party for me — and I got an earful! Taxes, tax rates, Fairbanks, Sewataro, Route 20 sewer, LS agreement, AP class selection, Select Board policies, BFRT rail trail, Eversource, and more. We covered a lot of ground. I was challenged and learned a lot and am grateful to the neighborhood group that took the time to share their concerns and hopes with me.
Sudbury Chamber of Commerce
The Sudbury Chamber of Commerce is a vital component in the fabric of our town. Many local business owners are also residents, and it was interesting hearing how their concerns as residents and business operators converged or diverged. Talking about signs, permits, tax rates, and the New England Patriots at the Chamber’s monthly social was great.
Sudbury League of Women Voters
It was lots of fun celebrating 100 years of League of Women Voters with The League of Women Voters of Sudbury on Sunday, Feb. 9. Interesting discussions from our state legislators. Happy to hear how State Representative Carmine Gentile is working to protect public schools from dangerous pesticides, Senator Mike Barrett is working to fight climate change and make Massachusetts a net zero energy user, and Senator Jamie Eldridge is fighting to preserve open space through the Public Lands Protection Act, among other worthy efforts from all three legislators. I was happy to be part of it.
Tall and Small Ball
Great fun dancing up a storm with the Tall and Small Ball sponsored by the Sudbury Family Network on Saturday, Feb. 8. SFN does a great job on behalf of families.
Coffee with Charlie
Join me for coffee on Thursday, February 6, from 9-10 a.m. at Sudbury Coffee Works, 15 Union Ave. Please bring questions, concerns, and any words of wisdom you care to share as I campaign for Select Board.
