I chose to live in Canandaigua because of its natural beauty, sense of community, and livability. You can often find me bicycling around town, kayaking on the lake, or gardening at my house, which I renovated with my wife, Lauren. As a Special Education teacher, I use creative thinking, adaptability, and patience to serve my students’ unique needs and help them to achieve their goals. I would approach this position on City Council with the same care and commitment.
I am also a volunteer member of Climate Smart Canandaigua because I feel strongly about the need to act on environmental issues. I believe that with the right leadership, our city can be a cleaner, safer, and healthier place for all.
I look forward to connecting with you and listening to you. I will work hard to:
• Safeguard our natural resources—I will support actions that protect the beauty and health of Canandaigua Lake, and will drive forward other green initiatives throughout the City.
• Protect public amenities—I will work to ensure that everyone has access to the lake and that the viewsheds from Kershaw Park are preserved.
• Ensure our financial security—I will propose budgets that maintain our low tax rate and high level of services.
• Improve infrastructure—I will embrace creative infrastructure planning that provides functional and aesthetically pleasing solutions.
I would appreciate your support on Tuesday, November 5th as I run to represent YOU on City Council!
