Why are you running for Manlius town supervisor?

I believe that with my professional background in the financial industry for over 27 years and my experience as Minoa village trustee now in my second four-year term, that I have the ability and knowledge for the position of Manlius town supervisor.

Also, I have lived in the town of Manlius for over 30 years and have worked all of my adult life for positive change. My family and I now feel that the best way for me to continue to serve the people in the town of Manlius is to seek the office of Manlius town supervisor.

Name two key issues happening within the town that concern you and please describe what you would like to do to address them, if elected.

One key issue that concerns me is communication and the relationships between the town and villages, which I believe needs improvement. There needs to be a better partnership with our town and villages. With my experience as a village trustee, owning my own business and understanding employer-employee relationships, I know how to bring all of the parties together to learn to work together and improve communications.
