Making a Difference for Amherst Schools

About Eric

Eric grew up in Amherst, and is proud to Chair the Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee. Over the past three years, Eric has made a difference stabilizing the leadership of our school district, and has led efforts on the committee to develop long-range strategic plans, capital plans, and adopt school equity goals to ensure a supportive environment for every child in our district.


Over the next two years, our school district needs to:

  • Upgrade our facilities, including improving accessibility

  • Build a new elementary school to replace Wildwood and Fort River elementary schools

  • Provide a stable leadership to support our teachers and staff

  • Advocate for new state resources to reduce the burden on our towns

  • Make progress on the racial and social justice goals

  • Invest in sustainability, including new net-zero schools.



There are a number of candidate events taking place. Eric looks forward to seeing you there!
