Message to Constituents:
I am honored to join the City Council representing Area 1. As a life-long Meriden resident, I am both proud of our city’s diversity and history and aware of the many challenges facing low-income and under-represented people in Meriden. For 18 years, I have worked in child protection for the State of Connecticut and have come to learn the role of government in supporting those in need. As City Counselor I vow to represent the voice of our community. I look forward to advocating for expanded services and opportunities for all who call our city home.
