More about Kristie:
Being a multi-generation native of Nantucket, this island is a special place for me and my family. Growing up on Nantucket, I loved summer days at 40th Pole with the Flaherty-Reis clan, fall nights cheering on the Whalers, and winter days playing Ice Hockey at the rink. There's something in my blood that draws me to Nantucket. After a decade of living in the city, my husband, Ben (a native too!), and I decided in 2016 to once again make Nantucket our home.
I am running for Select Board because I want Nantucket to continue to be a vibrant, successful, and beautiful place to live for generations to come. Nantucket truly is at a critical point and decisions now will affect the future of our island.
While tourism is the lifeline of our economy, the community of Nantucket is what makes this island the best place to live. I want to be a voice for everyone in our community and work to make Nantucket a more inclusive island. This means celebrating the families who have made Nantucket their home for generations, as well as welcoming new residents to our island.
I look forward to connecting with you over the next few months! Don't forget to VOTE on April 9th!
