A Message from Erin

Braintree is a special place for us all — there's no better community on the South Shore to live, work, raise a family, and retire. My husband and I are raising our three boys here, and I own a small business in town. For nearly the past decade, I've been committed to keeping our community strong, as Chairperson of the Town's Planning Board and Hollis Elementary School PTO Co-President.

Right now, the Town is at a crossroads and is facing significant challenges. It's time to get Braintree back on track with professional administration and decisive leadership, a fiscally responsible commitment to taxpayers, and a dedicated focus on our families in the Braintree Schools.

Asking for your vote in November is a big request, I know. I look forward to working each and every day to earn your support and trust. I can’t wait to meet you on the campaign trail.
