What is an issue affecting the town that you care about most and want to make a priority? How will it guide your decision making?
Martin: An issue that concerns me is balance in our community. How do we as legislators balance growth with the desire to not lose the small town feel? How do we balance town needs while not overly burdening individual homeowners? How do we protect our environment, infrastructure and community safety while being good stewards of the residents tax dollars?
As a Town Council member, residents reach out to me and express their concerns and I have always been responsive and attentive to those concerns. I will continue to do so going forward, always looking for that balance.
