Message To Voters: I would be honored to be a member of the Cayuga County legislature. My candidacy can bring some different skills and life experiences to the table. I would work toward efficient and effective government; clean water in our lakes, streams, wells and public water supply; no fracking waste on roads or stored in the county and Broadband for all. I formed the Fix Our Roads Party to call attention to our state highways, which are in serious need of repair and seem to be at the bottom of the state's to do list. The county can also assist towns in road maintenance, equipment sharing, joint purchasing, and other avenues of coordination.Cayuga County must be a hospitable place for workers and for small and medium businesses. My experience as an attorney representing those groups is an important quality I can bring to the table.
