Heather Hamilton’s Priorities
- Sustainability: Purchase green equipment for the Presidents Golf Course, retool county buildings to earn LEED certifications, and update the Norfolk Agricultural High School curriculum to include the latest in scientific consensus on climate change and environmental protection.
- Fiscal Prudence: Ensure full compliance with state procurement laws while minimizing the cost of running the county’s departments, an especially high priority as COVID-19 strains town budgets.
- Representation: Better reflect the diversity of Norfolk County by serving as the first independent Commissioner in living memory and the first female Commissioner in 30 years.
- Transparency: Host all Commissioner meetings on Zoom for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and post a recording of each meeting online for Norfolk County residents to see at any time. Post searchable minutes to complement video recordings. Unrecorded conference calls and cumbersome PDFs are outdated and inadequate.
