When Ward 3 asked for protection ... Owen came through.

Lisa DePiano: "He was very present both emotionally and in action with the recent house fires. I personally felt at ease knowing that Owen was engaged in forming the Neighborhood Watch and working on the arson victims' fund."

Lola Reid: "I have been particularly struck by his ability to listen to various sides of an issue and was especially pleased that he was able to bring balance to the Neighborhood Watch, steering it from a hard-line approach it might have had."

Owen talks about gathering community consensus ... and that is what he has done.
Nicholas Horton: "I've had the great pleasure of interacting with Owen over the past few years through his work on the Ward 3 Neighborhood Association and our advocacy of the expansion of the bike trails through town. He's the real deal and I know he is serious about bike issues." George Kohout: "Owen and I collaborated on the recent 2010 Census campaign and the committee discussions leading to the formation of the Zoning Revisions Committee. His enthusiasm, attention to detail and thoughtful contributions have made a big impression on me."

Dillon Sussman: "He helped build a relationship between the Smith College Landscape Studies Department and Ward 3. When I served on the Zoning Revisions Committee, he provided valuable feedback. He and I worked on creating two different neighborhood surveys regarding planning issues in Ward 3: one about green space and one about infill. What I respect most about Owen is that he doesn't just talk about things- he does them."

Jesse M. Adams: "Owen was my Treasurer and one of my top policy advisors when I successfully ran for City Councilor At Large. I know that he will encourage open and honest debates about all issues, will listen and weigh the concerns and interests of the people with an open mind, and will show shrewd judgment in his decision-making."

Joel Spiro: "I had the pleasure of working with Owen on Northampton's Complete Count Committee for the federal census. Owen volunteered his leadership in Ward 3, and helped organize other volunteers. Owen was always there when you needed him and inspired all of us."

Owen says he su~ports public education ... and has acted on it.
Ellen Nigrosh: "Owen has also been a valuable and dedicated member of the NEF Endowment Distribution Committee. He has great ideas, he follows through on his commitments, he listens to all points of view, and he thinks things through." Deb Christakos: "Owen worked on the Vote Yes campaign in Ward 3 as a highly motivated and informed volunteer. He worked with former School Committee member Tim Fisher to promote Safe Routes to School. He is also a member of the NEF Endowment Distribution Committee, which has funded several noteworthy public school initiatives including Green Action and Creative Classrooms."

Jack Finn: "I have worked alongside Owen Freeman-Daniels on committees for the Northampton Education Foundation and have been impressed with his eagerness to work hard. Owen's approach has always been to be intellectually rigorous and to fully grasp issues before proposing solutions."

Michael Kusek
