With Clay Taxpayers In Mind

Before there was a County Legislature there was a Board of Supervisors that governed Onondaga County. Each Town Supervisor and representative from the Syracuse Common Council would meet and decide County policy – there was no elected County Executive. This system of government was more responsive to local taxpayers in my opinion.


Todays’ County government is too big, less transparent, more political, and tends to push the desires of State government first instead of heeding the voices of local taxpayers. This has to change and that is why I am running for 2nd District County Legislator.


As the former Supervisor of Clay, I know how important a town board’s input is in making decisions at the County level of government. As your County Legislator not only will I actively seek input from constituents, but I will be in constant contact with Town of Clay officials. Every vote I cast will be with the best interests of Clay taxpayers in mind.

I respectfully ask for your vote on November 7th.

I encourage you to explore my website and contact me with your questions or concerns. Thank you!
