Warrensburg races

Qualifications for office: Current Town Supervisor with 17 years experience in town government. Management experience in a Fortune 500 company; extensive budgeting and cost-cutting experience.

Leading campaign issues: Keep Warrensburg moving forward! I need to continue to manage the Town and get past this economic downturn. I need to keep making improvement to the infrastructure in the town at a reasonable cost to the taxpayers.

What I'd accomplish if elected: Continue to bring integrity, experience and dedication to the office. I have served as a full-time Town Supervisor. Continue to seek out competitive grants to make improvements in town while maintaining what we have with our excellent workforce. Continue to serve all Warrensburg taxpayers. Continue to move Warrensburg forward - not backwards!

Leading issues in this campaign: Continue dialogue with governmental agencies for the future expansion of the hamlet (i.e. North Warrensburg, to rtes. 9 and 28 interchange), water meter installations, wastewater treatment and well water expansion, town road and sidewalk expansion and repair, crosswalks and Main St. maintenance strip pavers.
