My Top 3 Priorities

  • Strengthen the delivery of essential city services that support a great quality of life for every resident
  • Continue protecting the unique character of Belmont’s neighborhoods; preserve our parks and open space, bolstered with placemaking in our public spaces.
  • Invest in vital infrastructure needs in streets, sidewalks and sewers along with continued work on a future community center and vibrant town center fostering economic development and bringing us together
