for lowell city council
meet vesna
why i'm running

The driving force behind my bid for City Council is my long-held belief that we are “Stronger Together.” And by “together” I mean that every resident of Lowell has the opportunity to participate in our government. I mean that we as a Council are open and transparent. I mean that we actively seek input from our constituents. And I mean that we take that citizen input seriously when making decisions for the City.


Through citizen participation we can achieve the best results in education, safety, economic development, policing, and budgeting of resources. I believe that our diversity is our strength and that reaching out to all communities will yield ideas and solutions that may otherwise not surface. That is why I will bring issues to neighborhood groups and work to insure that important information reaches all corners of the city.


I have been a public servant since 1991 when I joined the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office. In Lowell I have served on several boards and committees, completed a previous term on the City Council, and continue to be a community activist. I believe in Lowell. That is why I have raised my family here and why I will continue to work for the betterment of the entire city.
