Quote: "Besides doing the best job I can by being a leader and acting professionally, legally and fairly, I want to bring the Town of Dannemora together as a community. There are activities our townspeople, from children to senior citizens, can benefit from, not all of it funded by taxpayer dollars. I will access these programs to make life a bit easier in this tight economy. I also promise to listen, take the townspeople's ideas and, with the whole board, make them happen. I will finish what I start – I'll roll up my sleeves to get the job done. I will be an excellent representative and spokesperson for the town."

Political experience: Town Councilperson since 2001
Quote: "As your supervisor all expenses will be scrutinized so we don't spend any more money than is needed. Also, until our Town Hall is completed, I want to alternate the monthly meetings between Dannemora and Lyon Mountain. It is most important to give all the residents in the Town of Dannemora a chance to attend the meetings. It is the concern of many residents regarding the hours at the Town Hall. If I am elected, the Town Hall will be open five days a week to allow public access and to ask questions. This is a democracy and let's keep it that way."

I will pursue very quickly the answer of what is going on with the issue of the new highway/town hall buildings. I will sponsor a clean up weekend. The contract for the sale of sand has to be renegotiated. We need more money for this sand, period. I won't have any secrets."
