"I am very honored to have been appointed to the Colonie Town Board. As we move into the 21st Century, I look forward to helping our municipality face the many challenges that lie ahead. It is my goal to deliver a fair and honest annual line-item budget that will maintain our low property taxes, and still deliver the high-level of services we as residents both expect and desire."
