Candidate Statement-- Kathy Strom

Formatted HTML message

In attending Town events and walking around the community, I have had the opportunity to meet so many of you and hear both what you appreciate about the Town and its services and where you think we can do better.  What has come through clear as a bell, however, is that we all share a love of the Town and believe we are fortunate to live in such a remarkable community. 

I believe that you know how hard I have worked for you both as a committee volunteer and later as a Town councilmember. My actions as a councilmember have shown you how well I listen to your comments and concerns and then follow through with programs and services that help bring the community together. I believe my actions on the Council demonstrate my respect for public service and for Town residents. I take my responsibilities very seriously.   My record shows how successful I have been in getting things done. 

Besides being a mother, being on the Council is the hardest job I have ever had.  Why? Because my actions have direct consequences for you and your neighbor’s safety, and for all of our quality of life and enjoyment.  I take these things to heart, consider all points of view and work to make decisions that I feel are the best outcome for the common good.

I ask for your vote on Tuesday to continue my leadership on the Council and my responsiveness to the community.  I will continue the work I started to further improve:

Communications. Let’s build on the success of the Town Crier, our newsletter and our website and make it easier and faster to get good information to you so you can be up to date and well informed.

Community events for all.  Let’s continue to meet and get to know one another through both fun and serious social events, lectures and forums.  The more we intermingle, the more we respect one another and come together as a community.

Protecting and expanding public open space. Let’s continue to push for new parks and playgrounds and work to protect our Trail and the buffer areas we have. 

Good governance. Let’s continue to make our government more accessible and responsive by greatly expanding our public hearings and forums so we can speak with you and hear directly from you before Council decisions are made.

My continued promise to you is to answer your questions honestly, to take your point of view fully into consideration and to use good judgment in any vote I take.  I am careful, conscientious and thoughtful. I promise your trust will continue to be well placed in me.
