My name is Siobhan Cunningham and I’m asking for your vote for your local Ward 1 City Councillor.
I am a technical program manager at Novartis Institute of BioMedical Research with 15 years of diverse experience delivering results in complex situations with many constraints. I’m running for three key reasons.
First, it is critical to bring technical knowledge into local government. Software is changing our world at a rapid pace and we need to be able to engage thoughtfully and with confidence so that we can make technology work for us rather than be overrun by it.
Secondly I’m running to bring a strong voice for bike lanes, sidewalks and sustainable development to Newton Corner specifically and Newton in general. We need to enable more residents to be able to successfully live in Newton with either no or fewer cars per household.
Finally, I’m running to work for diverse housing in Newton so that people who build their lives in Newton can remain in Newton through all the phases of life. Newton is stronger when it can support people and families throughout all of life’s twists and turns.
I will work tirelessly to make Newton a great place to live for all of it’s residents.
Thank you for your time.
