The Town of Union is indeed one of the most special places not only in our state, but throughout the country. Our community – comprised of Endwell and the villages of Endicott and Johnson City – is rich in history, culture and a resolute work ethic that has long been its strength.
This community has been my home throughout my life. It’s where my husband, Rick, and I chose to live and work, and it’s where my daughter, Kristin, received her education and competed in athletics. So it’s easy to see why nothing could make me more proud than serving the residents of the Town of Union. It has been a great honor to represent the people in our community for four terms, and I’ve done my best to live up to the trust that’s been placed in me.
As an elected representative, I believe that providing essential services for town residents, promptly responding to constituent needs, and working to improve people’s lives is what public service is all about.
Other Town Board members also share that belief. Through teamwork we’ve achieved such recent and important goals as keeping town property tax rates low, leading the way for uniform code enforcement standards, supporting local ambulance, fire protection and state police/sheriff services, and advancing a comprehensive town development plan.
While serving as a Board member, I have had the pleasure of concurrently serving on multiple committees – including Finance (9 years as Chair), Laws & Legislation (8 years-Chair, 13 total years of service), Parks, Recreation & Environment (4 years-Chair, 6 total years), Planning, Zoning & Economic Development (3 years-Chair; 8 total years), and Public Works (3 years).

I am a life long resident of the Town of Union. I grew up in North Endicott and graduated from Union Endicott High School. I then attended Jacksonville University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. My career was in teaching mathematics for 30+ years, and I’ve continued to work for 7½ years as a substitute teacher at Maine Endwell and Union Endicott High Schools.
Prior to my 2008 election as a Councilman for the Town of Union, I served on the Town of Union Citizens Advisory Council for Community Development and was the chairperson for the Village of Endicott Citizens Advisory Committee for Parks. I was very active as a Basketball Coach for many years, and also founded the Southern Tier Storm AAU Program.
My goal as a Councilman is to continue improving the quality of life for all Town of Union residents.
1) I am committed to maintaining the high level of service that the Town of Union provides its residents, and will try to continue to improve those services without adding additional economic burden to the town residents.
2) I will continue to address the growing problems connected with absentee landlords and creeping commercialism and their effect on our neighborhoods.
3) I believe that working with community leaders and local businessmen to improve our athletic facilities and recreational services will stimulate economic development in the Town of Union.
4) I am dedicated to exploring new areas of town service, and offering ways to control living costs, that town residents will benefit from.
5) I will strive to resolve local environmental issues with input provided by members of town advisory organizations.
6) I believe that working closely with community residents, and having their participation on issues of concern, is essential for effective problem solving.
I would appreciate hearing from Town of Union residents and other local officials.
I always have time to talk and listen to what you have to say.

I am proud to represent you and over my first 4 years have never missed a meeting or work session. I take this job very seriously! By arriving at meetings with issues researched and homework completed, I am prepared to make good decisions for our Town.
We live in a Great Town, one of the largest in upstate NY, which with vision and planning is one of the most fiscally stable towns in the state. Leadership in maintaining infrastructure, safe modern equipment, and dedicated employees will provide the excellent service deserving of the good people of the Town of Union.
