Candidate profile: Jim Putorti

What is your occupation?

Retired from Finch Paper company.

 

Past political experience or community involvement?

Three years as a town councilman.

 

What qualities do you possess that would you make an ideal candidate for his position?

I’m dedicated to assigned tasks and I’m always available in the village.

 

What are the biggest issues facing the village of Whitehall?

The water and sewer project.

 

How would you address some of the infrastructure (sewer system, Williams Street canal wall) issues facing the village?

We need to seek grants for these projects.

 

What specific recommendations/changes would you try to implement if elected?

Look at ways to consolidate services with the town.

 

It has been suggested the village and town may at some point share a single building that would house both municipalities. What is your opinion of consolidation of village and town resources?

I think consolidation of any service is a good thing. I believe one building for the town and village offices is something that should be done.
