“I have been a resident of the village of Fayetteville since 1996,” Palazzoli said. “My husband, Dan Tyrel, and I have four children who attend FM schools. We are extremely active in local organizations and school activities. Given our active community involvement, I have built countless personal and professional ties to the community in the past 17 years. I believe in the local model of government and I believe I am the best choice for the job of village justice.”
