Hi Wakefield Parents and Caregivers. My name is Jennifer Kallay and I am running for reelection as Gas and Light Commissioner. I am an energy professional, elected public official, engaged community member, and mother of two children – one at Galvin Middle School and one at Woodville Elementary School. I was elected to my first three-year term on the board of Wakefield’s municipal electric and natural gas utility in 2018. I want to continue to bring my knowledge and expertise to energy decision-making for the Town of Wakefield over the next three years. My areas of focus are cost, customers, and environment.
