Chambers, Lanphear take out papers for council seats
Paula H. Chambers has taken out papers to run for City Council from Ward 2.
Chambers resides at 31 Federal St. and her campaign Facebook page is ChooseChambersWard2. Chambers attended the Brown School and Newbury Elementary School. She graduated from Newburyport High School and earned a degree in French after studying at the Alliance Francaise and Barrington College.
Married with two daughters and four grandchildren, Chambers was the sole proprietor of Chambers Specialty Advertising, a promotional products company, from 1992 to 2012.
“I’m running for City Council to represent the people of Ward Two in a hands-on way,” she said. “I intend to be hard-working and fiscally responsible, especially knowing that a tax increase is scheduled to hit homeowners at the end of the year.”
Chambers said that “We must preserve full public access to our central waterfront, parks and playgrounds.”
Also, Lyndi Lanphear of 347 High St., has taken out papers to run as an at-large candidate.
Lanphear was active with the SAY NO to Local Historic District, group, which was successful in defeating this proposal before the Newburyport City Council.
“I love history and I am always open to ideas for helping to preserve our beautiful historic buildings,” she said, “but not at the cost of our local government taking away homeowners’ personal property rights.”
The candidate earned her bachelor’s degree in business education from Salem State University. She had previously worked as an account executive with several brokerage firms and specialized in municipal bonds. She has been a public school teacher and presently works as an accountant and manager of a professional office building in Newburyport.
She and her family have lived in Newburyport for the past 27 years. More information can be obtained at the following: LyndiLanphear@me.com or visit www.LyndiCares.com, or Facebook, Committee to Elect Lyndi Lanphear.
