When you run for office you obviously are asked why are you running.  My answer has always been: my desire is to help this community in any way I can. East Rochester has been a wonderful place for my family growing up here , and I am sure many other families could say the same. As with any other community we need to grow and to do so we must change. A part of a healthy change is the involvement of its residents , their opinions , feelings , and efforts . I feel in these times, more people want to have a bigger say in their community and I think East Rochester is one of those towns. One of my major reasons in starting the Parks Committee was to have residents come together and work on making our village and it’s parks look great . I think the future will hold many positive plans for little East Rochester.


In this coming November's elections, I would appreciate your vote for Village Trustee.  Asa a life long member of the East Rochester community, I believe in working hard to make our village a unique and great place to live, work and succeed. Please consider voting for me on November 2.
