My wife Alice and I have been married for over 40 years and are blessed to have our children and grandchildren living in Penn Yan. Penn Yan is a great place to raise a family and we all need to work at keeping it that way.

I believe that much can be accomplished by working together with other municipalities and organizations. I will continue to look for cooperative ways to meet the needs of the people of Penn Yan.

I am also a proud member of the Penn Yan Lions Club.

The beauty of our lake.
