Eddie is committed to a city government that honors the arts and cultural creativity/vibrancy of our community. Eddie wants to ensure that New London's plans for economic development include affordable residential and commercial spaces created in currently existing buildings, to help keep our most creative community members in the city, and accessible mental health and addiction services.
Running for Board of Education on the Green line is public education advocate and proud parent of a Jennings School student, Keith Kimball, who is committed to ensuring that our all-magnet district effectively acquires and distributes funds/resources for all New London students; building our already impressive ESL program; and improving the timeliness and quality of communication between NLPS administration/faculty and New London parents and students.
The Green Party is committed to sustainability, social and economic justice, grassroots democracy and nonviolence.
