As a Town Board member, I took the initiative to challenge then Supervisor Mark Venesky, and submitted a petition signed by Cicero voters to force a Public Referendum, allowing Cicero Residents the right to vote on whether the town should borrow $10 million dollars to spend on a new highway garage. This was the first time in the history of the Town of Cicero that town government was required to let the voters decide, and is only one example of my continuously representing the rights of the people.
In the spring of 2021, I took leadership at Town Board meeting by proposing a Comprehensive Plan for Cicero, providing our town the opportunity to craft a vision for our future. I am pleased to report that this plan is now active. Article may be viewed at the Eagle News Online website.
Later in 2021, I led the Town Board’s decision to reject a proposal by the New York Department of Transportation to install a roundabout at the intersection of Thompson Road and Route 31. Such decisions should not be made without more input from Cicero residents, which was part of the rejection resolution. The article may be viewed at the Eagle News Online website.
Given my experience in private business, as a former Cicero Supervisor, and my service as Cicero Town Councilor, I am uniquely qualified to advise and comment on Cicero government. I have proved that I will not be intimidated and will continue to ask the tough questions, all to encourage the town board to publicly discuss the many issues that affect Cicero residents, including the construction of apartment complexes, and the terrible traffic congestion.
My Facebook page will always be there to keep you apprised of key issues that affect us as residents and taxpayers in Cicero.
