Neighborhood Activist

  • For most of my adult life, I have been a neighborhood activist. I began as Public Works Chair of the Newton Upper Falls Improvement Association, and subsequently served as Chair of the Newton Upper Falls Advisory Committee that oversay the renovation of the Newton Upper Falls Depot and the construction of Pettee Square Plaza. I served as Planning Committee Chair of the Newton Upper Community Development Corporation and eventually served as President. I recently returned to the NUFCDC Board.
  • I was one of the original members of the Newton Neighborhood Network when it was founded by Alderman Polly Bryson and Susan Mirsky. I have been happy to work with many neighborhood groups, both new and old, in planning responses to their problems.
