I’m not a politician. If you tuned in for the political discussion on Lighthouse TV you already know that. I’m just a sincere, straight-talking, hard-working businessman who wants to give back to the community as your town highway superintendent. If you give me the opportunity, I will bring to this job the same energy, dedication and skill that served my own customers so well for over 30 years.

So, let me speak frankly. The truth is that the work of a Highway Department is hard, labor-intensive work and there is a right way to do all of it – from potholes to major infrastructure projects, from team-building to skill development. We need better and you deserve a better Highway Department. I have the skills and experience to do this job better for you. I want to give back to this community I grew up in, raised my family in and care about deeply. Yes, we can do better and we must do better. “Good enough” simply isn’t good enough any longer.

No, I’m definitely not a politician, but you don’t need a politician to fix and maintain your roads and the equipment you paid for. Vote for me for your town highway superintendent on and I will show you what skill, hard work, business experience, and integrity can do on your behalf – for our town. Let’s make Saugerties a better place for us all.


In closing, I would like to say thank you to my family and friends for all your hard work on my campaign. I appreciate everything you have done. Also, thank you, town of Saugerties residents. You have welcomed me at events, allowed me to knock on your doors, and invited me in your homes just by reading the newspapers. Your kindnesses are one of the obvious reasons we are known as “friendly Saugerties.”
