Moavenzadeh will look to reduce tax base, raise home values

AMESBURY — As part of The Daily News coverage of the upcoming city election, the newspaper is publishing profiles of the candidates for City Council.

Today’s profile is David Moavenzadeh, who is running unopposed for District 3.

DAVID MOAVENZADEH

I’m running because I’ve been living in Amesbury for 16 years, and while I’ve seen change in the infrastructure, I haven’t seen much change in the school system or in the way our money is being budgeted or spent.

I think at the rate we’re going, nothing is going to change unless we really make an effort. So I want to get on the council, see how things are being run, and if there are some helpful suggestions that can come along from people in the town. This is more of an open forum. We really want to hear what people want to do with the city of Amesbury, and what direction to take it into.

Age: 51

Years in Amesbury: 16

Family: wife Sharon, and sons, Spencer and Joshua

Education: graduated from Weston High School

Employment: Self-employed since 1987 working in residential remodeling

Past political/public service experience: none

Top 3 priorities:

1. Schools/education: improve educational programs and opportunities for higher achieving students. I want Amesbury to be the magnet for the advanced students in the area. A stronger school system will increase home values.

2. Promote Amesbury as a viable option for businesses. Bringing strong business revenue to the city will help to increase home values and reduce tax base to residents.

3. Improve financial accountability. Seek to share services with neighboring towns where appropriate. Ensure financially sound decisions drive appropriation of funds. This will help to raise home values and reduce taxes.
