My family and I have always lived in the Spencerport School district and my daughter graduated from Spencerport. She moved into the village about 8 or 9 years ago and we now have 2 grandsons.
3 1/2 years ago my wife and I moved into the Village of Spencerport. We love it here so much I wanted to get more involved. I have attended the village meeting almost every month since we moved here. I like how the village has improved (grown) just since my daughter moved here. I have a good relationship with some of the village employees & many residents.
Due to a vacancy I was appointed Trustee in September 2014 and elected in March 2015.
I enjoy the position thus far and I feel I'm a good fit because of my background and experience.
