Community service is a very important part of my life. Being an elected official affords me the opportunity to benefit my community in so many wonderful ways.  I am able to really make a difference by assuring adequate funding for programs and projects for the Village of Haverstraw. As a community leader, the opportunity to create and chair events that benefit so many families here in Haverstraw is my true reward.   I am committed to ensuring that Haverstraw is a desirable place to live, raise a family,  work, shop, invest and do business.
