For Amherst Town Councilor
District 3 (former precincts 4 & 10)

I will represent our District by proposing and supporting policies that balance community, diversity, and affordability to protect our neighborhoods, create sustainability, and locate development appropriately.




Did you know that the new Amherst Town Council

We must ensure that the proposed developments serve the common good of the town and protect our visible history, green spaces, and residential neighborhoods.

I pledge myself

Dorothy Pam has "... the values, the “spine” and the critical independence to help the new Council make decisions that benefit all sectors of our town….For me, the key is to elect independent Council members who are not beholden to any special interests, and who have the alertness to keep a balance among our residential neighborhoods, our open farm and conserved green spaces, and the kind of development that will bring revenue to Amherst without damaging the qualities that led many of us to live here."
