I am confidently endorsing Amanda Como for town council. Amanda’s conviction and dedication as a resident of Westfield is unmatched. She will be an asset to the community moving forward as our next Ward 1 councilwoman.
My first opportunity to meet Amanda was through the established friendship of our daughters starting at Franklin Elementary School in 2015. From there, Amanda and I coached together in both softball and basketball through the Westfield town leagues. Immediately, it was apparent to me that Amanda was a born leader and an amazing example to these young girls. While she was no doubt highly competitive and wanted to “win”, it was clear her top priorities for the girls were to teach them the game with unwavering patience, and more importantly to simply have fun and be good teammates. The girls gave Amanda their respect and undivided attention every step of the way. Many of them are still playing today and I believe it’s due to the positive foundation and inspiration that was established with Amanda as their coach.
Aside from coaching, I have been able to see the passion that Amanda has in making our community a more positive place to live. Setting aside certain party lines, and open to ideas and beliefs that are for the greater good, she cares about Westfield and listens intently to all sides to understand problems and to find solutions. Her goal is to see Westfield flourish, function properly and to continue to be a town people want to live in for generations.
Amanda Como is going to make things happen with significant change, and is clearly the right person for the job.
