Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
We intend to be in Pelham for a long time, and our son will be going through the schools there. I want to contribute to the continued vitality of the Village for his generation.

What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?
I have worked for the past three years with the Pelham Civic Association to serve the needs of students, the elderly and the needy in Pelham; and I recently joined their Board. I have actively advocated over the past year for establishing shared services with Pelham Manor to save costs for both villages.

What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
1. Increased public input on all issues that are addressed by the Board, to represent all aspects of the Village

2. Contain tax increases by taking a longer-term view of the budget process, especially regarding state pension costs.

3. Address long-term infrastructure challenges, including flooding and poor quality of sidewalks.
