continued Why are you running for office? I believe no public office candidate should run unopposed for any extended period of time. It is not in the best interests of the tax-paying community too subside to complacency and lip-synch that unfortunately, and too often, occurs when a public officials remains unopposed over time. I am running for Camillus Town Supervisor because I believe the best interests of the majority of the people of Camillus are not being protected and the voices of the community are not being listened to and acknowledged.
Why are you the best candidate for this office? I consider myself the best candidate for Camillus Town Supervisor because I am not your “typical politician”. I view matters of public policy with compassionate and empathy. When making decisions that effect the livelihood of our citizens or any decision occurring at a population level, I employ best practice strategies for community mobilization while considering the most effective and efficient manner to do so. There are no surprises with my approach to handling business and professional matters and people appreciate that. Professionally and personally, I practice an open door policy and friends, co-workers and those I served over the years have alike, recognized me as their advocate and agent for change. I am dedicated, passionate, honest, transparent, and proactive. I choose to live and work with the philosophy of my ancestors (the Iroquois) to make decisions with seven generations to come in mind. That is my pledge to the people of Camillus. There are no surprises with my approach to handling business and professional matters.
What are the issues facing the town, and what will you do to address them? I cannot stress enough, that the people of the Town of Camillus hold the answers to this. As a community educator, counselor/therapist, youth and family prevention specialist, a school board member, and a loyal friend to many, I have been blessed with the ability appropriately listen to people’s concerns and effectively advise and resolve issues in the most adequate, efficient manner that serves the best interests of all parties involved. Ultimately, my goal in serving the people of Camillus is to seek, obtain, and maintain their overall safety and well-being, financially, legally, socially, leisurely and environmentally.
