Message To Voters: The person you vote for to represent our district on the County Legislature will play a pivotal role in the future of our community. I am asking that you consider vote for me on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. As a lifelong resident of Weedsport and the place I chose to raise my family; my community, the people in my district, and the problems we face are important to me. Having spent a lifetime devoted to both public safety and human services, I will advocate for family values, individual responsibility, clean water, public safety, community pride, fiscal responsibility, civil liberties, local economic growth and accountability. My only agenda will be to do the best job for the people who elected me. I will be an independent voice for my constituents who will vote on the merits of an issue and what is in the best interest of our community, not the desires of special interests. Making the most of every public dollar will be my top priority as your Legislator. I have put forth innovative and cost saving solutions to the problems facing our community while staying true to my core beliefs and principles. The implementation of cost effective solutions will not eliminate services or accessibility but instead, deliver them in the most fiscally conservative and sustainable manner possible while removing the burden from the tax payers. The Village of Weedsport and the Town of Brutus are an exceptional and quite unique community and it would give me great pride to serve as your representative on the Legislature. Every vote in this election will be critically important. Please help bring our community values to the Legislature by voting for me.
