Values and Vision

Shanna Fishel for YOUR Northampton Mayor

With Shanna as Mayor of Northampton, they will lead the effort to bring together our community and enable better care and services for all. Shanna will use equitable municipal planning that is logical, data-driven, comprehensive, integrated, and transparent. Our town will be fiscally sustainable when managing our finances, while caring for people, communities, and the environment.


COVID-19 has created a crisis on many levels, and it is too soon to fully realize the long-lasting impacts. As circumstances evolve, we must continue to ensure public health and safety, while addressing growing disparities and prioritizing equity, safety and care for all our community members. Shanna’s COVID-19 rehabilitation plan will focus on restoring trust with residents, business owners, members of the workforce, and organizations, and propel our community into recovery and growth. We will invest in small business recovery and economic enhancement opportunities to revitalize our downtown. Shanna will endorse creative and effective solutions for those most impacted by the pandemic, while actively seeking input from stakeholders and residents in the development of recovery strategies. 


As mayor, Shanna will protect our environment and our community, leading decisions that consider the land, energy, and water as community members, which have stakes in our actions. With the understanding that these elements play an integral role in the health and equity of people and the environment, Shanna will promote green municipal practices, increasing access and improving management of our natural resources. Municipal decisions will engage those affected most by potential changes and involve them in the process of design and implementation of green infrastructure changes. Shanna will ensure that environmental justice is addressed in all municipal planning and rooted in racial and economic justice, as we aim to protect human rights, the earth, and future generations.  


As many of us who call Northampton “home” are priced out, we need strong leadership and inclusive measures to address residential and economic opportunities. Shanna will promote efforts towards a robust community economy able to withstand future crises, and promote progressive economic justice. With strategic improvement planning for the benefit of renters and owners, Shanna will pursue affordable housing construction and renovation, revision of underutilized buildings, increased support to vulnerable households, and promote rent stabilization measures and neighborhood improvement projects. To nourish and support our business community, Shanna will work to retain existing businesses, attract new ones, and encourage entrepreneurship, while considering the needs of employees and employers equally. 


Shanna’s experiences as a special educator in Boston Public Schools and as a clinical social worker providing outreach services in Western Mass highlights their dedication to serve marginalized people, those with functional differences, and the working class. Through partial and gradual divestment from our inflated police budget, Shanna will invest in our community, including timely access to mental health services and expanded educational programming, while ensuring our budget is fair and equitable and our community is safe for all. Recognizing the importance and efficiency of peer-led community care services, Shanna is dedicated to strengthening mutual aid and harm reduction programming. Shanna will promote justice-oriented educational reform in our schools, highlighting history as a pivotal point of education with the capacity to reflect on race, gender, geopolitical location, and economic status, honoring our diverse experiences. Shanna holds a vision for our schools and community as a home for imagination, advancement, and social repair.
