Andrea Howley: People live in Jamaica Plain because they’re attracted to its cultural and socioeconomic diversity. We live in a unique environment, and it is our challenge to make sure everyone’s voice is heard. I am a lifelong resident of Jamaica Plain. I possess over 20 years of experience as a corporate executive. I have campaigned locally, served as a board member and fundraiser for the Jamaica Hills Association, as well as for the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council zoning, parks and open spaces and public safety committees.
I serve on the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council because I believe in the council’s ability to listen to the neighborhood’s concerns and take those issues to the next level. I also serve because I believe people need to give back to the communities in which they live. Therefore, I wish to do my part by continuing to serve on the JPNC and need your help…your vote. Thank You
