Board of Health Race Heats Up

by Bobby Blair
April 12, 2018

Laura Nolan, Professional Engineer, for Board of Health

Holliston’s Board of Health seeks to promote and protect the public health and safety, as well as protect the environment. As a registered Professional Engineer, I understand the challenges facing our community’s health. My experience focuses on protection of water resources through sustainable planning and design, which presents a unique opportunity for Holliston’s Board of Health.

Holliston faces several health challenges, including the ever-expanding impact of growth and development on our natural resources, specifically water supplies. As arguably the most pressing challenge to our health, I hope to engage the Board of Health in the discussion of protecting our water supply. This effort serves both Board’s missions and brings environmental protection to the forefront of the discussion.

 In addition to water, my other passion focuses on food systems. Through my graduate studies, I became fascinated with food, from agriculture to supply and ultimately the beneficial influence that healthy food has on our health. To me, food is our healthcare. As an agricultural community, Holliston’s farms should be part of the public health discussion.

My experience working with municipalities large and small to solve their water resources challenges has provided me with a unique background to serve on the Board of Health in Holliston. I will bring a fresh perspective and help the town to navigate safely into the future. I’d appreciate your support to allow me to serve you on the Board of Health.

As a former member and chair of the board of health, I find Ms. Nolan is the kind of member the board needs. I would have loved to have a person with her expertise on the board.

I consider Ms. Nolan a well qualified candidate. The Board can certainly use a professional engineer who can make competent decisions concerning sanitary and other environmental issues in our town.

A well-qualified candidate to tackle Holliston's growing challenges over the coming years. You have my vote! Please let us know if we can help in any way!
