Kristen Richardson - Morrisville Council
My reasons for running: I grew up in Durham and have lived all of my life in the Triangle. My husband and I moved to Morrisville six years ago and we love living here. It’s been a wonderful place to start our family and I look forward to raising our two kids here. I’ve seen a lot of changes and growth in Morrisville in the last six years. I want to be part of leading our town into the future as one of the best places to live and work in the Triangle, the state, and the country.
If elected, I’ll be a strong advocate for our community with the Wake County School Board to ensure we have high-quality public schools available as our population continues to expand. I’ll also work to ensure that we approach our town’s infrastructure in a thoughtful and forward looking way. This includes ensuring that transportation planning keeps up with increased traffic. It also includes continuing to make Morrisville an accessible place to live for people from all backgrounds. I want to encourage the diversity that is part of what makes our town such a wonderful place to live.
