Town of Cicero candidate profiles

— I am a “people not politics” person. Being a longstanding resident, homeowner, business owner, parent and, of course, taxpayer, my interest is not a career politician but a business woman with the experience, integrity, and proven record that I can do the job. I know that the town of Cicero needs a person with the proven ability to lead with integrity plus utilizing the skills of the town board members, the other elected officials and involve all the department heads to create a working relationship that always has the residence in mind.

I have and will continue to dedicate the time necessary to provide the leadership that this elected position requires. In 2010, while in office, I implemented an internal audit in all departments handling money. Within the justice department the audit uncovered a major impropriety involving a justice clerk which since has been rectified. I along with other board members was instrumental in bringing the Municity software program into the Zoning office stream lining records for better service. During my previous administration I was successful in bringing a Mega Nice n Easy to the much needed Brewerton residents. Several new business joined the town of Cicero including CJ’s Car America, Sea Ray Boats, Dunkin Donuts, First Niagara Bank, Mavis Tire, Whittaker’s Trophy, Cicero Family Dental, Dog Water Training, Taste of Boardwalks, Tim Horton’s, Arrow Glass. The Loretto project which is a new dimension to nursing care was initiated to build a facility near the Twin Rinks skating facility. Many business expansions were also a part of Cicero’s continued growth for existing businesses to provide better services to its residents. Continuing to move the Brewerton Revitalization Project forward had proved to be a slow process. Realizing and then involving two major key groups i.e.: The Onondaga and Oneida nations and the Historic Preservation Group this project was able to slowly move forward. My understanding of what was necessary took time but proved to be successful. My heart is in this project and I am a key player to see it come to fruition while working with the Brewerton Revitalization Committee. Anyone who knows me knows that I speak the truth, even though it might not be the answer they wanted to hear. Having filled this position before, I know that in the best interest of the residents in the town of Cicero, I am the best candidate for this office.
