Born and raised in New York City, I fell in love with upstate New York when attending SUNY College at Fredonia. After graduating in 1971 with a degree in Economics, I worked at a number of local businesses and then worked for Chautauqua County Social Services and Probation Departments before becoming a New York State Parole Officer. I retired in 2009 after over 30 years. Since then I have worked at our local Y and the ARC.
My family includes my wife and four sons. We moved to Canandaigua in 1992 and couldn't resist the charm, friendliness and beauty of Canandaigua and chose to live here. We built a home on Chapel Street. We moved to our current home in Ward 2 four years ago. Our youngest son still lives in Canandaigua with his wife and 2 year old daughter.
I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity as a truck driver helper and recently helped on the homes being built in Ward 2. My past volunteer work includes over 10 years as a volunteer fireman and rescue worker for the Village of Mayville.
With my degree, my work in government and my volunteer work, I feel I stand ready to serve our city.
