Why am I running for office?

As the supervisor for the town of Cicero in 2010-11, I had the opportunity to appreciate the need for a full-time supervisor. I have the experience and I am dedicated to provide strong leadership with integrity and fairness. I am retired, have grown children and a family who supports my commitment. I have continued to be involved with all town issues. The many challenges facing the town ahead require someone with experience and hands-on knowledge plus a proven record to not be afraid to make tough decisions. I have and will continue to face all challenges head on. Always keeping an open door to the residents especially during the reassessment project was not an easy task and continues to be a challenge for many residents. My heart is in the town of Cicero where I plan to continue to make our town fiscally accountable and set achievable goals for the best place to live, work and raise a family.

Why are you the best candidate for this office?

Experience matters is the key. The town supervisor is a full-time position which requires a dedicated person who will be a full-time supervisor. I have attended all town board meetings and have had my finger on the pulse of the town of Cicero while participating from the resident’s side during these board meetings for the past 21 months. I have been involved with all phases of the town’s operations, including Zoning and Planning, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, drainage and infrastructure. My strengths include being organized, the ability to communicate orally and written, I have strong interpersonal relationship skills, and team concept for decision-making.
