Green energy from the hydroelectric dam is a part of Holyoke’s legacy. While the federal government drags its feet and the Commonwealth does what it can, front-line communities like Holyoke must balance the pressing energy needs of our community with the immediate impacts of climate change.


I helped Holyoke gain “Green Community” status which allows the City to qualify for State grant and funding opportunities that finance energy efficiency and renewable energy projects at the local level.

I led Holyoke’s effort to become the FIRST in the Commonwealth to pass a resolution in support of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).

I supported the $275,000 Barr Grant that would have helped Holyoke map out a just energy transition to renewable energy sources.


Work in close partnership with Holyoke Gas and Electric to ensure we are using our existing natural gas capacity efficiently. I am committed to making sure Holyoke has the capacity we need to grow today, while also diversifying the city’s energy portfolio, and planning for a renewable energy transition tomorrow.
