A note from Joe:

It is my honor to serve Lexington as a Selectman since 2013, and my pleasure to run for re-election on Monday, March 4th.

As a Selectman, I represent and work for the people of Lexington. I cherish Lexington’s diversity. I strive to engage all residents, to tap into the skills and talents of our entire community - both to make better policies and to create a sense of belonging and inclusion.

As your Selectman, my priorities are to pursue: wise fiscal policy, environmental sustainability, and public safety for all.

In pursuing these priorities, my approach is to avoid assumptions, dig for facts, and clarify - in a transparent manner - the issues for our community. Working on hard problems toward sustainable solutions is what I love to do. I believe in aligning support by stating a clear, open case and finding common interests collaboratively. I search for the value in every idea, and I value respectful closure when it’s time to move forward.

I would love to hear from you. Please contact me. Or join me at an upcoming event.

Thank you,


Vote Monday, March 4

Polls will be open from 7am to 8pm. Click here for more information.
