Three running for two board spots in Minoa

Eric Christensen

Running for village trustee. Incumbent.

He is a 1979 graduate of Fayetteville-Manlius High School and married to Marlene, with a 23-year-old son, Kyle. He works for Alliance Bank and has lived in the village of Minoa for 25 years. He is also currently on the village board.

Why are you running for office?

I am currently a village trustee seeking re-election, and I am also a father, husband, taxpayer I remain devoted to helping create a brighter future for the families of Minoa which I enjoy serving.

Why are you the best candidate for this office?

Because I am passionate, devoted, dedicated to the Village of Minoa.

What are the issues facing the village and what will you do to address them?

Some of the issues facing the village are, loss of a quarter of a million dollars in sales tax and unfunded mandates. How I address them is by working collaboratively with other elected officials. Myself and fellow board members are evaluating all of the service that we provide to see where we can make any reasonable cost saving changes without affecting the services we as a village provide.

What do you love most about your village?

Minoa is a great community with so much to offer. That is why my wife and I choose to make our home in Minoa and raise our son.
