Pat has been very active in the Cazenovia Community. He is a member of High School PTA, and has volunteered as a coach for both youth football and baseball leagues. He was a member of the Caz Athletic Association, and served on the Board and as their treasurer. He also has served on the Board's of Cazenovia Country Club, Syracuse Rotary Club, St. James Parish, along with currently serving on the Cazenovia School Board for the past six years, and the last two as the Board's President.
In discussing his reasons why he wishes to continue as a member of the Cazenovia School Board, Pat stated, "the importance of providing a great school system is pivotal for the health, stability and growth of our community. I believe that we have to continually ask: how can we improve our academic and non-academic programs in this challenging fiscal environment and what do we need to do to improve our schools and grow each year?"
Pat stated that this can only be accomplished through great leadership from the school administration, school board, support staff, and most importantly through our teachers. He believes that "to continually strive for improvement, there needs to be more active dialog between the parents, community members, and school administration and board so that all stakeholders are working in unison so that the children in our district can reach their potential, and help them grow to become the next generation of leaders."
"I believe it is imperative that this continued search for excellence in our schools be accomplished with utmost fiscal responsibility to the taxpayer. I look forward to this continued challenge and serving the Cazenovia community on the School Board, and I ask for your vote on May 18," Vogl said.
