If you had to live in a different city, what city would you choose?

My hometown of Pittsfield, MA (it’s a love/hate relationship).

Storytelling or Innovation? Which is the most overused word in local government?

Less Innovation more storytelling, please.

Which year was the most important year in your life? Why?

2016. I went from working at a large hedge fund in Connecticut to running for the State Legislature in my post-industrial home town. I learned a lot from both experiences.

(Complete this sentence) The one thing that I think is missing from local government is…

Power, and the recognition that we don’t need to wait for the state or federal government to fix things.
