Fasanelli: Trustee Candidate Looking To Serve

Letter from George Fasanelli

Trustee Candidate Looking To Serve

I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. I graduated from Queens College of the City University in 1977 and received my MBA from St. Joseph’s College on Long Island.

I retired after 34 years of service with the Suffolk County Police Department at the rank of deputy inspector. In addition to my time on patrol, I was an investigator with the Internal Affairs Bureau, the commanding officer of the Data Services Section, the Police Academy, and the Special Services Bureau in the Detective Division. I retired in 2016 after serving as the executive officer of the Seventh Precinct, a command of approximately 80 officers.

My wife and I have been homeowners here in Cooperstown since 2016. I am father to two girls: one who is a nurse in the Bassett Healthcare Network and a second who is a nurse practitioner in the Syracuse area.

While on Long Island, I spent many years (20+) as a volunteer for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society following the death of a close friend.

Since moving to Cooperstown, I have afforded my services as a volunteer at the Village Library, the Susquehanna SPCA, the Cooperstown Food Pantry and, most recently, as a literacy volunteer at the First Presbyterian Church.

My wife and I are members of the Rotary Club of Cooperstown and have been regular attendees at the meetings of the village trustees.

Although long out of school, I remain a history buff and believe in all the good things that America stands for: participative democracy, inclusion, open dialogue, hard work, and respect. And I would look to serve the citizens of the village with on open heart, a generous hand, and keen awareness of my role as a champion for the village, its residents, its history, its merchants, and its healthcare workers.

    Best of luck to George, whom I know personally, as a wonderful, competent person! The village is so fortunate to have him and his wife Cathy as residents and, hopefully, George as an elected official.
