Like my parents, I was born and raised in Ward 2. I want to be your representative on Waltham's City Council. Our neighborhood, and City, are going through prosperous, but disruptive changes. I grew up playing at Lazazzero Playground and fishing in Hardy Pond, and I want the next generation of Ward 2 residents to have the same great experiences I had in our neighborhood.


I've made a career helping clinicians analyze and build technology to improve how they treat patients. Those same skills, along with expert customer service, will be put to work as the City Councillor in Ward 2. I want to bridge the gap between neighbors and city government. Neighborhood and quality of life issues are my number one priority, and I believe our tax dollars should be invested in education, safety and infrastructure. I want to improve our streets, support our public safety services, mitigate traffic, keep a close eye on tax increases and property value, and ease the burden of the construction of the new Waltham High School at 554 Lexington Street.

First reading of WHS budget/loan approval

The City Council, at the August 5 special summer session, approved the first reading of the loan order to fund construction of Waltham High School at 554 Lexington Street. Bill attended and noted a significant amount of people in Ward 2 both for and against. The needs and concerns of abutters and neighbors will require a lot of attention from the next Ward 2 Councillor, and Bill is best suited for that role.

Community Meeting for WHS @ 554 Lexington St

There was a productive meeting held in the Waltham High School Robinson Auditorium on July 17. Many abutters, neighbors, and concerned citizens asked thoughtful questions and had real-life concerns. More to come on this project. Some highlights of note:

  • The property will NOT be clear-cut and there will be no taking of any residential property
  • Questions were asked about traffic patterns, blasting insurance (City will provide this), what kind of fencing would be installed and about the 30-40 foot barrier to abutters, about what trees would remain, flooding, rodent control and the blasting schedule.
  • Several residents asked about the duration of the project and where construction vehicles would park

Watching Waltham hit the road and recorded episode 5 at the Waltham Public Library. We welcomed Kaytie Dowcett, Executive Director of the Waltham Partnership for Youth (WPY). We also interviewed two WPY all-stars, Lissett and Jeffrey, who shared their experiences, struggles, and successes about growing up in Waltham and in Waltham Schools. Mike was coaching baseball and Shawn was coaching lacrosse, so they'll be back next episode. Thanks Kaytie, Licette and Jeffrey (and their parents and families for letting them be interviewed) and thanks for listening!
