    My name is David Sutz and I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Town of Woodbury Supervisor.

    In 2016 and 2017, it was my honor and privilege to serve as supervisor of our wonderful town, and together with my board am proud of the following accomplishments:

    Lowered overall taxes both years.

    Resolved the former police chief issues and promoted the current police chief from within.

    Positive outcome in the two lawsuits over the Cornwall wells.

    Stayed under the 2 percent cap while managing budget controls.

    Saved legal expenses and fees by more than $100,000.

    Revamped the town phone system to include the village, thus saving over $15,000 annually.

    Worked respectfully and effectively with the Mayor and Village board to coordinate savings for the taxpayers.

    My wife Maria and I have lived in Woodbury for more than 20 years, where we have enjoyed a wonderful life raising our children and volunteering as EMTs with the Woodbury Volunteer Ambulance Corps.

    I have always believed in the importance of giving back to one's hometown, not only to unite residents but to strengthen the community.

    My business background consists of owning and operating Burger King restaurants as a franchisee for more than 38 years.

    If elected, I will continue to look for tax savings while maintaining our current high level of services, as my first fiduciary responsibility will always be to you, the tax payer.

    I will encourage, embrace and respect input from fellow board members, staff and residents alike, while leading with respect and transparency.

    My goal is to reopen communication with the Mayor and Village leadership, thus helping to restore Woodbury to the strong, efficient municipality it has been in the past.

    I humbly ask for your vote for me, David Sutz, as Town Supervisor, and my running mates, Susan Fries-Ciriello for councilwoman and Patrick Rafferty as councilman on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

    Thank you,

    David Sutz
