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 honored to serve the residents of the Town of Union. As a life long resident of the Village of Endicott and the Town of Union I have been passionate about serving my community. My vocation has been focused on public safety in my roles as a law enforcement officer with the Endicott Police Department, manager of Security and Emergency Services with Huron Real Estate, and life member of the Union Volunteer Emergency Squad. When I served as Trustee in the Village of Endicott, I worked to provide effective local government services in the most cost efficient manner possible. I have served for numerous years on the Union Volunteer Emergency Squad Board of Directors, Town of Union Street Light Commission and was a past member of the Broome County Traffic Safety Board. I pledge to serve all residents to the best of my ability, drawing on my forty-six years of experience in public service.
Thank you for visiting the Town of Union website. I am grateful and humbled that the residents of the Town of Union have chosen me to serve on the Town Board!
> I attended the Maine Endwell School District as a child and graduated from Union Endicott high school. Growing up, I have fond memories of the Highland Park 4th of July fireworks display, playing sports through a number of community organizations and talking to the “old timers” that built this community.
> After graduating from Binghamton University, I went to work at local non-profit agency. I wanted to give back to the community that had given me so much. My wife and stayed here and are raising our children in Endwell.
> My goals as a Councilman are simple…to make this community a community that people want to live, work and raise their families in and to continue to improve the quality of life that we enjoy as Town of Union residents. We can do this by continuing to make the Town a safe and affordable place to live and by investing in our economic development. I will work with our other Council members and Town residents to address any concerns and issues effecting us. I will be a steward of our tax dollars, ensuring that the services we pay for are delivered and cost effective. I will explore any and all potential economic development opportunities as our future will be determined by our growth.
