PRIOR OFFICE: Village trustee seven years, treasurer four years
WHY RUNNING: My good friend Jimmy White has opted not to run, and an inexperienced trustee Waterman is running, so I am giving the village a choice.
KEY ISSUE: The current turmoil on the village board is an embarrassment to the entire town. Several board members are not communicating with the mayor, clerk and treasurer to be able to make responsible decisions. I plan to work with everyone to seek resolutions on key issues.
