COUNTY BOARD OF REPRESENTATIVES, DISTRICT 1
EDUCATION: BA in History, UCLA
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.
