My name is Stacey Herman-Dorant and I’m running for Town Meeting Member in Precinct 1. My husband and I are proud to have called Saugus home for many years and have a son who attended our public schools.
Having proudly served on the Affordable Housing Trust, it was my plan to run for this position last election cycle, but caring for elderly parents took me on another path. Now is the time to continue to give back to the community I love and care about. I’m energized to be even more involved in our community!
Throughout my career as a university administrator, I have been an advocate for student support and success. I hold an undergraduate degree in communications and master’s degree in higher education administration. Both of my parents were public school employees. They instilled in me the importance of volunteering and giving back to the community you call home.
I have always been amazed at what our beautiful town has to offer. We are privileged to have a National Historic Site, our historic Town Hall, and recreational spaces that provide us with prime open space. I want to make sure that these special parts of our town are supported and preserved.
I am a member and supporter of the Saugus River Watershed Council and Bike to the Sea.
I am a resourceful and strong leader with proven results as a relationship builder and problem solver. I believe that the more local representation in our town governance, the better our town can succeed. In Saugus we are a “Representative Town Meeting” form of government, meaning that 50 local residents are elected to represent you at town meetings. I feel keeping this form of government will help to maintain the historical character and quality of life of our town.
I ask for your vote and I look forward to working with other Precinct 1 Town Meeting Members to represent the constituents in our Precinct. I invite you to share your thoughts on the important issues facing our town by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
