What are the biggest issues facing the village of Whitehall?

The future.

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.
