Qualifications for office: I have served on the board for many years and have gained a lot of experience working with budgets and people in our various departments. I try to work with everyone and have an open mind when making decisions, whether it be for spending or other situations that come before the board.

Leading campaign issues: At present, preparing the budget for the coming year and trying to keep taxes as low as possible.

Qualifications for office: Two-term town Councilman, have owned and managed a residential construction business employing local people for 35 years. Serve as President and Chairman of the Board of the Research and Education Foundation providing scholarships to NYS students enrolled in construction-related fields.

Leading campaign issues: The economic vitality of our residents and the town itself. Our children are leaving the area for a variety of reasons. The lack of good jobs and affordable housing are two of them. There are too many commercial properties vacant in our town.

What I'd accomplish if elected: I will continue working diligently to respond to my constituents' requests for control of ever-increasing taxes and less regulation. Rural communities like ours have thrived by flexibility, resourcefulness and town spirit. State mandates and APA regulations limit our ability - "Together, we can do better!"
