Re-elect / March 4 Joe Pato Selectman

About Joe

More than 22 years ago, Joe and his wife, Jeri Zeder, created their home in Lexington where they could raise their two sons and provide them with a first-rate education. Joe was a research computer scientist and worked for 28 years with Hewlett Packard. When he retired and took on his role as Visiting Scientist at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab he made the active choice to give back to his hometown.

Joe began his work for Lexington in 2008 as a Town Meeting Member and soon took on a role as an Appropriation Committee Member in 2009. His deep connections to town issues — from creating a master plan to move Lexington forward as it grows, minimizing property tax increases without compromising community values, and safeguarding our health and the environment — led him to run for his first Board seat in 2013. Since then, Joe was Chair of the Board for two terms and has served on more than 23 committees in town. Joe is a strong leader for Lexington as he takes on the challenges of today to meet future needs — always through his collaborative approach and with a desire for transparency that allows our community to stay informed and actively participate.
