My name is Ben Harman and I'm running to represent Ward 4 on the City Council because I love Newburyport and I am genuinely interested in the work of our local government.
The decisions made at City Hall are the ones that affect our lives the most. I'm in this race to do the work for Ward 4, for Newburyport, and to represent the next generation of leaders who will see things through for our community. 
I will advocate for my neighbors on issues important to them
I will prioritize investing in our kids and work to find a home for NYS
I will bring awareness and urgency to the issue of of climate change and ways we can improve the resilience of our infrastructure
And I will focus on making meaningful progress to create more affordable housing for seniors and working families
I hope you'll join me as we have an opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to the City Council.
A vote for me is a vote for making real progress together!
