Jennifer Taub is super smart and very hard working. She's devoted to our town and our neighborhood. She’s determined to help us preserve the best of our existing housing while encouraging new development that’s affordable for year-round residents. She’s for a vital town center, with businesses that serve all of us. No one will work harder to respond to the concerns of the people of Amherst, old timers and newcomers. She’s the voice and vote we need on the Council.

As the architect of a controversial project that came before the Local Historic District Commission, I saw first-hand how Jennifer and the Commission worked for months to reach consensus and weave together input from a diverse cross-section of the community. As Chair, Jennifer was always inclusive, measured and respectful of all stakeholders and participants. I loved her willingness to listen and her spirit. Everyone involved now takes pride in what we accomplished together. Thank you, Jennifer and the Commission, for a great conclusion to my 50 years of practice.

A vote for Jennifer is a vote for wisdom, hard work, common sense, compassion, humanity, humor and as we say in Massachusetts, "she's wicked smart". She will serve your district and Amherst with distinction.
President, Craig’s Doors Past Chair, Amherst Select Board
I have seen Jennifer at work on the Local Historic District Commission and as an engaged Amherst resident for the past several years. She has exactly the kind of personal and meeting skills that we need on our Town Council: she is a good listener who respects the opinions of others whether or not she agrees. She is thoughtful and does her homework. She is articulate and presents her ideas with evidence and reason. She is tireless. She can change her mind, but is also fully capable of holding and defending minority positions. She usually has a smile on her face or a really good reason not to. She genuinely likes people. Jennifer Taub is someone we want on our Council as the Town works its way through difficult and contentious issues.
