A new face in a new place.

What qualities do you possess that would make you an ideal candidate for this position? Leader, know myself, know the problems of Whitehall and as a team working together we can fix the problems.

 

What are the biggest issues facing the village of Whitehall?

The future.

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

As a team, finding ways to resolve the problems and working together.

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

I don’t want to make any changes. I would like to fix what we have and move toward the future. With gas prices so high we need that grocery store. Maybe a trash day in the spring and fall.

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 consolidations of village and town resources?

I am in favor of consolidation if it benefits the community, but I hope it doesn’t take as long as the town did to find a place to move.
