Meet Kate

It is with great enthusiasm that I share that I am running for a seat on the Lexington School Committee.  I have tremendous passion for our town, our public school system, and our community. Faced with overcrowding, budget pressures, and severe student stress, Lexington needs strong leadership from its School Committee. I am prepared to take on these challenges, with your support.

 
Professional Experience

I am an attorney currently working part-time as an independent consultant for a municipal planning and community development firm, helping towns with capital improvement planning and school master planning. This directly-relevant skill set, plus the perspective of a working parent with children in the schools, would complement the strengths of the current committee.
