I have never held a public office, except in my experience as a civil servant with the Forest Service, experience that will help me as I run for the two-year term of selectman in Pittsford. I would like to bring this experience as well as a new set of eyes to help in the decisions and policies that may come up during this term. I can tell you that I am honest, open to listening to the concerns of the citizens, and when it comes to actually doing something about it, I can do it.
I have lived in Pittsford for at least half of my life, and I consider Pittsford my home. I have lived in many other places, but I always come back to Vermont, my home. Pittsford is a very special place to live, and I would like to keep it special, but at the same time, make it even better. I am a disabled veteran of the Navy, and those experiences will further enable me to fulfill my duties as a selectman for the town of Pittsford. Once elected, I will be calling upon the citizens of Pittsford to help me with my duties and to further the values and betterment for the town.
