Three candidates vie for Lysander supervisor seat

— Our spending is very much under control. The Empire Center for New York State Policy (See-Through NY) ranks Lysander 39th lowest out of 908 towns across the state in total spending per capita. We are fortunate that increases in our tax base have kept pace in proportion with our increased cost of doing business. Lysander has increased over 30 percent by population in the last two decades while our taxable assessed value has more than doubled. Increased property values account for some of this increase, which is a positive when considering the investment, and future return, on residents’ real property assets. While other towns struggle, we remain one of the fastest growing towns in the county. This can be attributed to the fact that we have a very well developed master plan, excellent schools, wonderful recreational amenities and low taxes. Lysander has been, and continues to be, a very desirable place to live and work. Demand spawns growth, and growth yields prosperity.

How do you plan to best serve residents?

As in the past, I will continue to serve the residents of Lysander by advocating for an honest, open, efficient, transparent and fiscally sound government. I have the will, energy and ability to continue to work full time, year round, as many hours as needed, to assist all residents regardless of the hour of the day or the day of the week. I will continue to listen to citizens’ concerns and do everything within my power to assist them whenever possible.
