I have lived in and raised my family in the Village of Ellenville for twenty years. It has always been my belief that we need good, honest, and hard-working people who are willing and able to step up, put in the time, and serve our community. Over the last three years, along with the other dedicated council members, I have been able to contribute to the taxpayers in several ways. These include:
My Liaison duties include:
Youth Commission and Town Pools:
Working with the town’s recreation department in the summer which provides approximately 300 young people with summer fun and two meals a day. We also look to hire 60 – 70 of the older students as camp counselors (Camp Shawangunk). Nearly $500,000 of the town's budget is uilized by the Recreation Department.
Wawarsing Water District shared with Paul Tuzzolino:
This is a new $22 million water district funded by the New York City DEC.
Napanoch/Kerhonkson Water/Sewer shared with Paul Tuzzolino:
We are responsible for the ongoing operation and maintenance of this water district. We provide oversight for the $10 million grant that is upgrading the Napanoch sewer district. This summer, work will begin to upgrade the infrastructure utilizing the CDBG grant obtained to modernize and build a new clarifier and sludge press in the Kerhonkson sewer district.
Ambulance District shared with Mike Moschetta:
Volunteer EMS for the Town of Wawarsing
Assessor's Office share with Mike Moschetta:
We assist our Assessor and residents with any concerns they have about property values in the Town of Wawarsing.
On a personal note...
Aside from my councilperson duties I also help our Town in other ways:
I strongly believe that party affiliation should not matter in local government. What matters is your willingness to help the residents you serve. I never think about what party a resident may align with when they come to my office. I ask them,” How can I help you today?”
As you can see, I’ve proven that I have the time, energy and skills necessary to do this, and am asking for your support for another term as one of your representatives to the Town Council.
