My goal is to be an effective liaison between local leaders; community groups; and taxpayers and our county government. Safeguarding our taxes, small businesses and protecting our residents from undue environmental and economic impact is my priority.
I am a life-long resident of the Town of Cortlandt; a graduate of Hendrick Hudson High School; and hold a BS in Organizational Management from Manhattan College. I am a decorated retired Westchester County Police Detective with a 40-year-volunteer career in the fire and EMS service, currently Deputy Chief of Buchanan Engine Company and EMT/Driver with Croton EMS. I am a past 10-year-appointee of the NYS Arson Board. I am married to the love of my life, Angela, and have six children between us and two treasured grandchildren.
As a Westchester County Police Officer, I could not run for or hold a public office but became interested in County Government. After patrol, joined the Emergency Services Unit responding to all emergencies at county properties and parkways. I moved on to the Hazardous Devices Unit and was a Hazardous Explosive Device Technician and Explosive Detection K9 Handler. In my 23-year-career I was exposed to county government and saw first-hand its inner workings. Since retiring, I have held many uncompensated elected and appointed offices in the fire service at the local, county and state levels, including a position on the County's Fire Advisory Board.
Forty years of helping people and making a difference in my community, gives me great joy and great empathy. I naturally want to help people and people come to me for help. In the offices I have held, especially on the board of a homeowner's association, I have been able to bring different sides and points of view together, for the common good to get problems resolved. I see this need in County Government.
I have the drive to make District 9 and Westchester County safe, secure and financially healthy. All my cumulative experience has given me the ability to collaborate well with people who sometimes have different views, but still get things accomplished and I will continue to work in a bi-partisan way for the good of the community.

My goal is to be an effective liaison between local leaders; community groups; and taxpayers and our county government. If there is an issue that is within my power to help with, I will be a responsive legislator that returns phone calls, answers emails, meets face-to-face and gives my constituents the attention and time they deserve and are entitled to.
