Champlain village candidates talk dissolution, beautification

— “I felt I could do a fair and sound job on the board,” he said.

In 29 years at the Wyeth-Ayerst facility, Trombley worked up the ladder from packaging to manufacturing to a technology scientist, gaining experience as a team and project leader that has greatly informed his work on the board.

He'll continue the work of the board by keeping taxes low while maintaining village services.

Some of those services might not survive a village dissolution. With many older residents who can't get out to clean the sidewalks, that service is a personal and necessary help to residents.

“I'd hate to see the village dissolved,” he said. “I think we provide the village residents and taxpayers with good service for their tax dollars.”

But, he added, as a trustee he must promote the best interests of the taxpayers. If there is good reason to dissolve the village, he wouldn't oppose it simply on principle.

He's been involved with St. Mary's bazaar for the past 20 years, and organized a very successful food drive last October for the Knights of Columbus.

“I represent the people in this village with integrity,” said Trombley. “The decisions I make on this board are always based on not wasting taxpayer dollars while continuing to ensure that our infrastructure and services are maintained.”
