My wife Sadie and I have 6 children (3 boys & 3 girls) and we live on West Street in a house we built in 2004. We moved to Sandisfield from CT because it reminded me so much of where I grew up in Columbia County NY, my wife and I agreed it was a great place to raise our children. I have been in the building trades since 1985 and have owned my own business for the last 27 years. I feel compelled to run for the Select board and do my part in helping our town navigate what will ultimately be some of the largest construction projects the town has undertaken in years. With the need for our town owned buildings to be repaired/replaced, the loss of our highway garage, broadband construction and the poor condition of our roads I feel my 33 years of experience and business ownership will be an asset bringing these projects in on time and within budget. I volunteered for the newly formed DPW committee and was elected chairman by my fellow members, we are currently developing plans for the replacement of the trucks and garage lost in the December fire. I invite anyone with thoughts or questions about this process to please attend one of our meetings or reach out to me personally. I would like to thank you in advance for your vote of confidence for me in the May election.
