Worcester City Council – District 1
Was first elected to the Worcester City Council in November of 2005 at age 24, to become the youngest person ever elected in Worcester. I was re-elected to a 2nd two-year term in 2007, and won re-election to my 3rd term in 2009.
I served on the City Council because I believe in Worcester. I am a young professional, who has lived here all of my life, bought a home here, and continues to build my business here. I see hope for Worcester.
I worked to expand the tax base, so that we could stabilize the tax bills of Worcester’s homeowners. I worked to bring new business to our city, and help the businesses that are already here.
I am a strong voice for our city. I have a clear vision of what Worcester needs to be to attract, and keep young people here.
I worked to keep class sizes small, and ensure that our kids get the quality education that they deserve.
I am concerned about neighborhood issues, such as the quality of life, the quality of our streets and sidewalks, and ensuring that our neighborhoods are safe places to raise families.
I believe we need a vibrant downtown, but we also need vibrant neighborhoods, and well maintained parks for people to enjoy.
I am visible. I met with neighborhood groups, and listened to their concerns.
I see a new Worcester. A Worcester where young people will stay and work, raise families, and make Worcester a better place for all of us.
That’s why I have been proud to serve on the Worcester City Council for 6 years, and represent District 1 the way it deserved to be!
Thank you for allowing me to be your humble public servant!
I look forward to spending more time working in my financial services business, Joffrey Smith Financial Group. You can visit me online at www.joffreysmith.com.
