    ‘Putting people before politics’

    One thing I have learned over my ten months in office as a Village of Woodbury Trustee is how committed you must be to meet the expectations of your constituents and yourself.

    For some candidates who run, a palm card is a road map of things you are not going to do; for myself, it was a check list of my reasons for running.

    This year, I am proud to say, Woodbury has six candidates who are not only committed, but whose backgrounds will benefit Woodbury residents for years to come.

    Last year, I was thankful to receive a lot of support from Woodbury Democrats and, as a Republican, no less. That's because the people of Woodbury put "People before politics."

    Let's elect the best people to serve Woodbury: David Sutz for Supervisor, Susan Fries-Ciriello and Pat Rafferty for Town Council, Tim Egan for Mayor, Tara Burek and CJ Graziano for Village Trustees. They will end this ridiculous lawsuit against the taxpayers of Woodbury and re-establish a working relationship between the Town and Village that existed prior to January 1, 2018.

    I know this because I have worked with these individuals on PTA's, community groups and church service projects. They are dedicated and will give their best to benefit their neighbors.

    On Nov. 5, join me in "Putting people before politics."
