On March 28th, vote for experience, vision, and collaboration.
Vote for Andy Steinberg for Amherst Select Board!
My priorities for the Select Board are:
* Sound town management;
* Protecting our quality of life;
* Collaboration & transparency.
Amherst’s quality of life is our community’s most precious asset, we must work together to protect and enhance it. We are defined by our public schools, public services, and thriving higher education institutions, beautiful surroundings and cultural richness. These qualities brought my family and so many others to this community. I want to ensure that these qualities are here for all present and future Amherst residents. We can accomplish this by ensuring sound management at every level of town services.
I have served in various capacities on volunteer boards for Amherst for over 20 years. I currently serve on:
- Select Board
- Budget Coordinating Committee, Co-Chair
- Campus and Community Coalition
- Town Meeting
I came to Amherst thirty-six years ago to live, work, and raise a family. I am an attorney and served as Director of Western Massachusetts Legal Services, a nonprofit provider of civil legal assistance for poor people for over 26 years. When I retired, I welcomed the opportunity to offer my knowledge and skills to our town.
Collaboration with all the stakeholders in Amherst is critical to getting anything done. That requires that the Select Board listens to people, considers their views and needs, and explains their decisions. I have always been guided by those values of transparency and collaboration in my professional work as well as my work in the community.
For example, as chair of the Finance Committee and co-chair of the Budget Coordinating Committee, I have worked effectively with members of the School Committee and Superintendent, Library Trustees and director, and Select Board members and Town Manager to create budgets that have wide support when presented to Town Meeting.
