With all the concerns and questions out there about the Override Vote on August 4, I have set up the following office hours for residents in District 1. There are no presentations – just a chance to come and talk and ask questions more one-on-one with myself and other residents about the override:
Tuesday July 7 7 pm-8 pm

Wednesday July 29 2 pm-3 pm
All meetings will be at the McCulloch Building at 182 Green St. , Classroom 7.
I strive to be a leader for District 1 and fight for what’s in the best interest of the residents for both the short and long term. As a well-rounded and approachable person, I want to hear the issues that concern you and work together to find a sensible solution. Weymouth is a vibrant and beautiful community. I’m excited about what the future holds for our town and I want you to be too.
District 1 is faced with the ongoing Fore River Bridge Replacement project which started in the Fall of 2012. Completion is set around Spring of 2017. So far we have had an extremely great working relationship with both MassDOT and J.F. White/Skanska, the general contractors for the project. In January 2015, the town was approached by Spectra Energy/Algonquin as a proposed gas compressor station is being considered on the Fore River adjacent to the MWRA pumping station.
Replacement of the seawalls of Fore River Ave. & Fort Point Rd. has been a challenge – with plans drawn up, the town has been working to find grants/money to get the much needed improvements started. The town is also in a grant seeking process to get work done at Great Esker Park and a trail system to link many of the area parks together to include Abigail Adams State Park to Great Esker along 3A. As of Spring 2015, we are in the process of developing the Kibby Property which was purchased with the Community Preservation Act as well as state land acquisition funds. The town is also currently revitalizing O’Sullivan Park on Pilgrim Rd with meals tax revenue.
Lastly, aesthetics & economic development along Bridge Street and Bicknell Square is something I’m extremely passionate about. We have many great small business owners in North Weymouth and we deserve our major artery to look presentable. Bringing the town, residents and business owners together to make positive changes is what needs to happen to get 3A the revitalization it needs and our residents deserve.
