Meet Mary Kate
I am a resident of Pheasant Hill, small business owner, former public servant and pragmatic progressive.
I have spent my life in service of others, first by working for Governor Deval Patrick and more recently as a voice for change on topics such as public transportation, sustainability and growing our economy.
As District 3 Councilor, Mary Kate Will Focus On...
- Working towards a greener future: Push for a strategic green plan reducing our carbon footprint by 2035, expanding services at the recycling center such as composting and reuse/swap programs, increasing the availability of charging stations and electric vehicles in the city fleet, and increasing solar on municipal roofs and canopies in parking lots.
- Investing in public transportation: Bring government partners together to develop a plan acquiring, designing and opening rail trails, such as the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail and the Upper Charles Rail Trail, and other alternative public transportation projects.
- Boosting economic development efforts: Support an economic team in tune with the needs of businesses by being ready to help them start and flourish and re-evaluate processes to increase ease for small businesses.
- Supporting new public and mental health initiatives: Champion the addition of social workers and mental health professionals in our Department of Public Health and Framingham Public Schools, including expanding social and emotional resources for students, and age-friendly community initiatives for seniors.
