I was born and raised a New Englander, I am extremely proud to be here at this time. I traveled across the US and noticed systemic inequality all across the board. it ignited my passion, I realize this is due to a corrupt and disenfranchised two party system. that needs to change from the ground up. It will start with small communities coming together in word and deed.


What do you see as the most important issue(s) facing Northborough today?
The most important issue facing norhtboro is equal housing for all i.e. elderly, disabled, and new generations. but also maintaining our history and agriculture while updating the towns infrastructure which is vital for a sustainable future.
What will you bring to the Board of Selectmen if (re-)elected?
I will bring a united leadership which represents all, while personally representing the LGBT community, The Rainbow Warriors are rising. Hunto Kiyo (call of the rainbow warriors)
Is there anything else you want voters to know about you as a candidate?
