What do you see as the biggest challenge your borough/township faces at this time, and how would you address it?

Education Assoc. Early Childhood Ed
Qualifications See below
I grew up in Lewisburg (S. Water St) and have recently returned following a 40+ year absence. I do have some catching up to do as far as Borough challenges. What I can bring to the table is many years experience in local government having been the Dukes County (MA) Register of Deeds for 20+ years. Additionally I volunteered as an EMT (14 years), West Tisbury School Committee (11 years), West Tisbury Board of Selectman (3 years), West Tisbury Personnel Board (3 years), West Tisbury Asst. Elections Warden (2 years) and as Acting County Manager (9 months). I look forward to identifying issues and working toward resolutions.
