Baldwinsville I am supporting Derek Shepard in the primary race for Republican County Legislator for the 13th District.
As president of the Greater Baldwinsville Economic Development Agency, he has shown great organizational and leadership skills. His primary focus has been bringing economic growth to the area by promoting tourism. The carp tournaments and alumni weekend are supported by GBEDA and the Margaritafest, which was almost entirely his vision, has been very popular.
Besides being a full-time SU law student and on the dean’s list, Derek is a town of Van Buren Councilor, on the board of Canton Woods Senior Center and president of GBEDA. He was executive director of Parkrose Estates and left that position to be able to attend school full-time and graduate in three years.
He has worked tirelessly to bring fiscal responsibility to the town and to any organization of which he has been a part. He is extremely organized and never turns down an opportunity to make the greater Baldwinsville area a better place to live.
I know he will bring this ambition and integrity to the 13th District and the whole of Onondaga County.
Mary Crego is the treasurer of the Greater Baldwinsville Economic Development Agency treasurer and a Van Buren resident.
