Tyngsboro Lawyer, Business Owner Candidate for Board of Selectmen – Lowell Sun

TYNGSBORO – Katerina Kalabokis is getting involved in city politics for the first time as one of four candidates vying for two seats on Selectmen’s board of directors.

She is optimistic for her hometown.

“Tyngsboro has problems like other cities, but there is nothing insurmountable,” she said.

Kalabokis grew up in Tyngsboro at the age of 10. She graduated from UMass Lowell and then went to Suffolk University Law School in Boston.

She joined a Boston law firm and stayed there for five years before deciding to return home. She has now opened her own law firm in Chelmsford. His specialty is family law and estate planning.

COVID is making the campaign difficult, Kalabokis said. “You can’t go knocking on doors now. She hopes that by Memorial Day she can organize a campaign event to speak with the townspeople. During this time, she talks as much as possible with the residents to find out what they are thinking and what is important to them.

“I have to wear many hats to run my own law firm,” she said.

Being a lawyer in a one-person firm requires, for example, the development of a business and financial plan. “I take on each challenge as it arises,” she said.

So, in addition to her legal skills, running her own law firm has given her a “unique skill set” that she can bring to the board. She would like to work “in collaboration and cooperation” with the other members of the board of directors.

Acknowledging one of the city’s burning issues in recent months – the animal control officer and her social media posts – she decided not to comment until more information became available.

She noted that The Sun just won its public registration application to force disclosure of documents in the case. But she said forcefully, “The only thing we can’t have is hate.

In the selected men’s race, she competes with incumbent David Robson Jr., former finance committee member Ken Pappas and another newcomer Eric Eldridge for two available seats.

Municipal elections are scheduled to take place on June 15, later than usual due to concerns over COVID.
