Rachel Pozzar announces candidacy for Milton Town Meeting
Rachel Pozzar to represent Precinct Eight
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
My name is Rachel Pozzar and I’m thrilled to announce my candidacy for Town Meeting Member in Precinct 8. I live in Milton with my husband, Wayne, and our two daughters, Elodie (6) and Adele (4).
I grew up on the south shore and spent much of my childhood hiking in the Blue Hills Reservation and exploring the Trailside Museum. When Wayne and I moved to Milton five years ago to raise our family, we quickly learned that natural beauty isn’t the only thing that Milton has in abundance. Milton is home to a wonderful community of residents who are dedicated to and care deeply about their town. I’m proud to be a member of this community, and I’m deeply invested in its future.
As a family nurse practitioner and a health sciences researcher, I’ve dedicated my career to the promotion of health, safety, and quality of life. As a Town Meeting Member, I pledge to continue this work on behalf of all Milton residents. I am eager to collaborate with constituents and elected officials to find enduring solutions to current challenges, including:
– Increased enrollment and the need for additional classroom space in the public schools;
– Traffic, parking, and speeding on our roadways;
– The rising cost of housing and the need to promote smart growth rather than unrestricted development; and
– Gaps in the public safety infrastructure, including the need to modernize the town’s fire stations.
My research career has prepared me to take a thoughtful approach to problem solving and to make decisions that are supported by the best available data. As a Town Meeting Member, I’ll use that skill to ensure legislative decisions are based on sound evidence and town resources are used efficiently and effectively.
I care about Milton, and I want everyone from students to seniors to feel confident that their interests are represented at Town Meeting. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time if you would like to speak with me further. I humbly request your vote for Town Meeting Member on April 30, 2019.
