Write in Paula Melton for District 1 Town Meeting Member, 3-year seat

After noting that there are only TEN candidates to fill 16 seats for District 1 three-year Town Meeting Members, I have decided to declare myself a write-in candidate.

If elected, I will represent West Brattleboro residents and interests to the best of my knowledge and ability.

My personal hopes and interests for West Brattleboro's future include:

  • sustainable infrastructure planning and improvements,
  • including increased walkability and traffic control 
  • the safety and health of vulnerable road users
  • rainwater management and flood prevention
  • affordable housing 
  • increase in services within walking distance
  • increased attention to the needs of seniors and aging in place

As for myself, I am a writer and the mother of three children, and I serve as Managing Editor at BuildingGreen, Inc. I live on Western Avenue near 7-Eleven, and if you commute to or from West B., you might see my family walking to school of a morning.

Thanks for considering me! If you'd like to get in touch:

Paula Melton
