Hamburg needs responsible and unifying leadership
At a time when our nation is divided, local government can pick up the pieces and focus on bipartisan solutions that build community.
That is why I have decided to run for the Office of Hamburg Town Supervisor. I have worked for over 20 years to better the lives of senior citizens and caregivers. In doing so, I have learned how to build community, bring groups together and get things done.
As a 42-year resident of the Town of Hamburg, I have worked with community leaders, coached young athletes, raised a family, worked for my family’s business and stood up for our older citizens.
Most recently, I led the work of one of the nation’s largest non-profit advocacy organizations in Western and Central New York. With experience leading teams, managing multi-million dollar budgets, and securing grant resources for local government innovation, I am ready to bring my talents to Hamburg Town Hall.
Even though I am a first-time candidate for elected office, I have been involved in the community for as long as I can remember. I have coached for Hamburg Junior Baseball and Softball League, Hamburg Little Cagers, St. Bernadette’s and Saints Peter and Paul Basketball. I began my career in Senior Services at the Hamburg Adult Day Program and the Town of Hamburg Senior Services Department. I went on to the Erie County Home, before serving as the Commissioner of the Erie County Department of Senior Services. Since 2016, I have led outreach and advocacy efforts in Western and Central New York for AARP.
Hamburg is my home and I want the very best for my community. That’s why I am running. Hamburg has some real issues that need to be addressed, from a declining tax base to development concerns. We don’t need divisive rhetoric and scare tactics. We need someone who is ready to show up every day to work for us. Throughout my career, from dishwasher to Associate State Director, I have a record of showing up and getting things done.
If elected, I promise to work hard, be an advocate for our community and listen to your concerns. Let's work together to move Hamburg forward.
