Village resident from 1969. Wife Linda, 3 Children. 6 Grandchildren. Decorated Viet Nam War Veteran. Member of St.Joseph's Church of Scotia. A Trustee for St. Joseph's Church. Trustee for the Village of Scotia. Chief of Scotia Aux. Police for 27 years. S/G DARE Advisory board Chairman for 9 years. Member of Scotia Rotary. Served on several committees for the Village. I love serving the residents of Scotia. I am very proud of what I and the Board have accomplished in the past four years. I hope the voters feel the same and reelect me.

Why do you want to sit on the Village Board of Trustees?

I want to serve the residents because I care about my community. I want to continue to keep moving forward and to keep the taxes low without cutting back on the quality of our services. And see that the river bank project, the road paving program continues, and keep residents

How do you plan to stimulate economic development in Scotia?

I would continue to work with BID (Business Improvement District) and Metroplex to continue to improve the appearance of our great variety of businesses. Scotia businesses are the backbone of the Village of Scotia. I would continue to encourage people to patronize our businesses.

Are there any ways the village could work with the Town of Glenville to achieve new cost savings?

As the Village liaison to the Town of Glenville I would continue to work on present and future projects. We are currently working on a joint leaf pick up program that will save thousands of dollars for the Village and the Town of Glenville.

Additional Comments:

I am very proud to serve as a Trustee and would be very happy to continue if reelected. Our board works very well together. We do what is best for the residents with no personal agendas. I am the only Republican running for Trustee so the voters have to look hard for me on the ballot. I am indorsed by the Republican, Independence, and Conservative Party's.
