I worked for over 35 years as a Parole Officer in the Buffalo and Rochester areas. I chose Canandaigua over 25 years ago because of the beauty of the lake and the friendly, family-oriented community. We raised our boys here and one son and his family continue to live here. My wife and I currently live in Rosepark Cottages.
Supporting my neighbors and community has always been a priority for me. I served as a volunteer fireman and lieutenant on the Rescue Squad in Mayville, NY. Currently I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity picking up donations and helping with builds, such as the one on Foster Street. I swam a mile in support of Light Hill in August and participated in the Triathlon at Kershaw in support of the Mary M. Gooley Hemophilia Center on September 8.
I believe that my education, career, volunteer work, and fresh perspective as a retiree will allow me to be a thoughtful and considerate representative. My priorities will be:
• Safeguarding our natural resources—I will advocate for the beauty of Canandaigua Lake and support green initiatives.
• Providing high-quality city services while maintaining low tax rates—I will balance the cost of government
while keeping public services that keep our community safe and thriving.
• Investing in our community—I will fight for affordable living options and programs that help people own homes and maintain their properties.
I look forward to your support on November 5 to continue my commitment of service to YOU!
