Linda Habgood is running for a 1st Ward seat on the Town Council for one simple reason: She is passionate about Westfield. “Our town has a winning combination of attributes—smart citizens, strategic location, financial strength and great schools,” she says. “I am committed to making it even better.”
Linda knows finance. She and two partners own a small business that facilitates foreign direct investment in healthcare, clean power, education, start-ups, telecommunications, and infrastructure in Latin America, Africa and Asia. For 28 years, she has thrived in a world built on public/private partnerships, and her knack for structured finance and ability to bridge differences have enabled her company to close more than $11 billion in transactions for 1000+ clients. Linda loves her business because she can use her talents to improve the lives of others.
