I am running to represent Ward 7 to promote sustainable development for our community, and will work to improve city services while being responsive to the concerns of residents.



Kristine Mackin moved to Waltham in 2009 to attend Brandeis Univeristy, where she completed a Ph.D. in biochemistry in 2014. She was elected to the Hovey Players Board of Trustees in the spring of 2012. Kristine has produced several full-length shows, along with the Play in a Day and Summer Shorts Festivals, and has experience recruiting and coordinating volunteers and managing a shoestring budget to mount award-winning local theater. She is a Waltham homeowner with her husband since 2012, and they enjoy everything the community has to offer, especially Waltham’s outdoor spaces, arts facilities, and restaurants.
