PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE: Restaurateur, Managing Real Estate Broker Associate, Marketing Director
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Board Member Franklin Stage Company, CANO
PHILOSOPHY OF GOVERNMENT: Simple: Promote healthy growth and and ensure public safety.
MAJOR ISSUES FACING OTSEGO COUNTY: Our county has not seen growth commensurate with our resources, which indicates, to me, a lack of imagination, a lack of ambition, a failure to coordinate or a bit of all of the above.
MY QUALITIES: I have been successful at understanding how things work, avoiding wasteful behavior and devoting focussed effort on the important factors that drive results.
STATEMENT: The day you are elected, you not only represent the party that got you there, but you also represent the people that voted against you. I, like many of us are sickened by the partisan divide in our politics and in our country. We need leadership over mere partisan representation to end this division and get things done. Any venture in which 50% of the people don’t trust and admire the leadership is certain to fail.
SIDNEY – A Unadilla man died in a car crash early today on River Road here, the fourth fatal crash involving local people in as many days.
Troopers report Jason R. Cunningham, 39, of Unadilla, was driving a van west on River Road when he entered a sharp curve, drifted into the eastbound lane and collided with an eastbound pickup truck, driven by Matthias J. Wesner, 35, also of Unadilla.
Flood stage is considered at 11 feet, and the river is reportedly just under 10 feet as of 5 p.m.. The National Weather Service predicted minor flooding between Main Street and River Road, and drivers are advised not to drive across flooded bridges or roads.
