Margot Douaihy: Gina-Louise Sciarra listens

Published: 10/13/2021 2:29:20 PM

The foundation of building trust is listening. That’s why I’m voting for Gina-Louise Sciarra for Northampton mayor. Time and time again, Gina-Louise has proven to be a deep listener who seeks buy-in from community stakeholders to enact meaningful action.

Not only is she our City Council president and chair of the Finance Committee, she also holds a full-time job with Pathlight, which provides services to people with intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities and autism. With her wide range of experience, she is prepared to address our most complex and urgent issues: social justice, housing instability, sustainability, and investing in public education.

As a queer woman, I know what it’s like to be dismissed, ignored and talked over. I only support elected officials who will honor and amplify all voices in the community. Gina-Louise Sciarra is the empathetic listener and creative problem-solver we need for our unique city to thrive.
