MALLOY: Buccheri Understands What Laurens Needs
LETTER from LAURA MALLOY

Buccheri Understands

What Laurens Needs

To the Editor:

I am proud to endorse Dean Buccheri for Laurens Town Supervisor.  Dean has lived, worked and volunteered in Laurens for 29 years.  He brings excellent credentials though his education, work experience, volunteering and community participation.

Dean has a BS degree in Business Economics from SUNY Oneonta and has operated a small business in the Town of Laurens for 25 years.  Dean is a past member of the Laurens Volunteer Fire Department and was Chief of the department for 5 years, where he was also a volunteer EMT.  Currently Dean is a member of Laurens Together, a non-partisan organization dedicated to improving Laurens, fostering transparency in government, encouraging cooperation, and communicating with the citizens.

Dean will enter office ready to lead. He has attended all but one town board meeting this year, and has been in communication with the Mayor of the Village of Laurens, the Laurens Town Highway Supervisor and other local municipalities in an effort to develop a positive working relationship between the Town and Village organizations.

Dean also understands the needs of local, county and state governments, having provided services through his telecommunications business where he builds 911 services. This has given him important experience working with government procurement, regulation, and other processes, as well as an understanding of building infrastructure, business negotiations, technical expertise, problem solving, customer service, and personnel management.  All of these skills, along with Deans ability to work collaboratively and focus on results, will make Dean an excellent Town Supervisor.  Dean knows that a successful outcome is one that benefits the whole community. I hope that you will join me in voting for Dean Buccheri for Town Supervisor on Nov. 5.
