How long have you lived in the village of Camillus?

34 years

Are you involved with any clubs or organizations?

I have been an active member of the Camillus Volunteer Fire Department for 23 years. I am currently completing my second three-year term as chief of the department. I have greatly enjoyed the camaraderie that comes with being a member and feel fortunate to have helped so many.

Why are you running for trustee?

I would like to serve my community as best as I feel I can. As a chief, I would like to think I had a part in improving the organization. {Q}Now that my term as Fire Chief is ending, I feel I can help better our community as a board trustee.{Q}

What do you think you would bring to the table as trustee?

I feel my experience as an emergency responder and leader as well as my technical knowledge would be a valuable addition to the village board. I can work together as a team member, but also feel comfortable in communicating ideas of my own. It's with these qualities that I hope I can make the board a stronger and wiser group.

When you think about your village, what do you consider to be the biggest "missed opportunity" of village board?
