Kickoff Event for Ward 1 Candidate Linda Habgood
The Kick-Off event for Linda Habgood’s run for Ward 1 Town Council took place on Friday evening in Westfield at the home of a neighbor. Nearly 200 people were in attendance, including candidates running for council seats from Wards 2, 3 and 4, Mike Dardia, David Contract and Dawn Mackey. Shelley Brindle, the Westfield Mayoral candidate, introduced Habgood, “I am in awe of Linda and how much she is able to do…” as a working mom and active volunteer. “She is a superhuman who brings everyone together. We are so lucky to have her.” Habgood delivered her remarks to a fully engaged audience whom she rallied to get involved. She pledged to commit the execution and fundraising skills she has accumulated over her 20+ year career in global economic development to improving the town—looking for new ways to save money and to earn it.
