Board of Assessors
I was born in Somerville, Mass. and attended the public school system. After graduation from Somerville High School I attended Northeastern University and obtained my bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering.
After my college career, I got married and accepted a job with Exxon Chemical in the process engineering and design division in Morristown, New Jersey. After eight years in New Jersey, we returned to Massachusetts and I worked for Bayer Chemical in Newton for 22 years. Today I am employed with the Cabot Corporation in Boston as sales director of strategic accounts for the chemical and electronics industries.
I have had the privilege of living in Carlisle with my wife Debbie for 26 years. We have three children who have attended the Carlisle Public School system and graduated from CCHS. Because our children were all very active in the sports and the music programs, I was interested in town issues and became very involved in Town Meetings.
I have served four years on the Recreation Commission and was a proponent for the design and construction of the Banta Davis Fields. This complex has become the focal point for the town’s recreation and sporting events and has added to the equity of the town for its residents.
The biggest challenge we face as assessors in the upcoming years is to fairly appraise the value of the homeowner’s property in Carlisle. The current nationwide housing crisis has seen property values decline considerably in many regions of the country. It is the task of the assessors to evaluate the true value of residential properties and preserve the long term equity for the Town of Carlisle.
