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 have always felt that life’s greatest rewards come from our efforts to help others.  As one of three children who collectively made my parents’ lives interesting, I learned at an early age how satisfying it was to be a brother who my two sisters could depend upon to see things from their perspective.

The opportunities to be supportive and to make a difference in children’s lives have continued while raising my own family of three daughters and one son.  Nothing is more gratifying than giving encouragement and spending time with my children, whether it be attending their school programs or golfing with my son. Like many parents I have been active in youth activities, most recently in scouting and coaching baseball, and having the privilege of being an appointed Broome County Family Court special advocate for abused and neglected children.

Serving the people of this community, like my participation in activities for children, comes from my heart.  The Town of Union is my home, just as it was when I grew up in Endicott, graduated from Union-Endicott High School, attended Broome Community College, and during my 28 years of ongoing employment with NYSEG.  I have advocated for and represented people in the private sector as a union negotiation team member, and I now have the honor of representing in the public sector Town of Union residents as one of their Council members.

As is the case with my NYSEG job as Manager of Training, I also take my Town of Union government responsibilities seriously.  Due to the town’s geographical mass of nearly 20,000 acres and the 56,000 people who live here, the decisions made by Board members affect an expansive region holding one-fourth of the entire population in Broome County.  Consequently, it’s essential for town elected officials to be informed, reasonable and fair in making decisions and in carrying out their duties.

It is truly a privilege to represent town residents, and they deserve total commitment from elected officials like my Town Board colleagues and me.  That is why I have been working my hardest since beginning my Council job on January 1, 2011.  I am sure the next four years, including my chairing of the Parks, Recreation & Environmental Committee, and concurrent service on the Employees & Safety Committee and the Laws & Legislation/Intergovernmental Committee, will bring many opportunities to assist others.  I look forward to affirming by my actions that I am a Councilman my constituents can trust to represent their best interests, and to doing all that I can to help make the Town of Union as special as the people who live here.
