I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and let you know why I’m jumping into town politics.
I have lived in the town for three years with my wife, Carolynn Purpura MacKay, and my 3-year old daughter, Cora. We added to the family 16 months ago with twins – Salvatore and Josephine. We love the town, the other young families and neighbors we’ve befriended, and regularly take advantage of all that Milton offers – from playgrounds, to parks, to restaurants, and beyond.
For those of you who know me, I think you’d agree that I’m generally an easy-going, fun, and fair-minded person. That being said, I am an outspoken advocate for things that really matter to me – my family, my friends, and my community.
I graduated from Boston College with degrees in accounting and philosophy. After school, I became a CPA and then moved west to work at and eventually run a non-profit homeless shelter in Tacoma, Washington. I settled back in Massachusetts about 15 years ago to work for my father in my family’s electrical contracting business. I am now part-owner and Chief Financial Officer of the company.
I enter Milton politics as a newbie. I have a clean slate with no attachments or affiliations to other politicians or influences. I follow the happenings in our town as an outsider. And even though I don’t have a polished political background, I do bring 25 years of experience making fair and tough decisions on behalf of thousands of people ranging from the homeless, to the business community, and to families that work for our company.
I look forward to using my life-long business experience and love for my family and community to serve Precinct 2 and the Town of Milton. Thanks for your support!
