Mary wants to encourage and inspire people to get involved, to voice concerns and offer possible solutions. She hopes to offer a space where people can talk about managed growth, transportation, housing and economic development, to keep Georgetown the wonderful community that drew us here and/ or kept us here.
She seeks to demonstrate that we can work together with and for our community, even though we are of different races and ethnicity, come from varied backgrounds and hold different beliefs. She believes we are more than our political affiliations, we are people first.
Most importantly she pledges to represent District 1 and the residents of Georgetown to the best of her ability by focusing on Georgetown’s mission statement of being a caring community that honors our past and innovates for the future.
