My fellow Piermonters:


I am asking for your vote in my run for the office of Mayor in the upcoming June Democratic primary election.  

As a person who grew up in Piermont, I believe that we need visionary leadership that can bring our diverse interests together to address the pressing economic, environmental, and social challenges we face as a community today, and forge a sustainable path forward into the future.  It is my belief that I can offer more to Piermont in the capacity of Mayor than the incumbent, or than I can as Trustee.  I do not take this step lightly, and I fully acknowledge the burden I am endeavoring to take on is a heavy one, but I stand ready to face these challenges for the future of our beloved Piermont community. We cannot afford to delay taking decisive steps to reimagine Piermont and adapt to a changing world and we have an urgent need to engage in a serious in- depth conversation among all our community stakeholders to establish an inclusive vision of Piermont for the next 5 to 50 years and beyond.

I have devoloped extensive knowledge of many critical aspects of Piermont life and government through my many years of service as Chair of our Waterfront Resiliency Commission, as a member of the Planning Board, and Village Board Trustee, acting as liaison to Building, Planning, and Zoning departments, the Fire Department and Department of Public Works, as well as Dive Lieutenant for our Fire Department.  I can hit the ground running to ensure a seamless transition of administration. I’m not afraid to roll up my sleeves and get to work, and I will dive right in to improving our efficiency and transparency, bringing people together at all the levels of our Village to build a better way forward. 

Through my work establishing our N2N alerts network, I have seen the value of engaging with our community to provide real, actionable information.  Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have worked continuously to ensure our Village governance has been available for public participation online, and that we have produced consistent messaging about our response and status.  I stepped up to do these things because it is our duty as your governing body to serve the public, and I take that duty and the oath that represents it seriously. 

As your Mayor, my priorities will be:

  • Controlling costs and building a sustainable budget
  • Working with residents and stakeholders to develop a Comprehensive Plan
  • Expanding public engagement and improving dissemination of public safety information
  • Preserving diversity of housing options and volunteer first responder recruitment

If I am elected, I vow to hear the input of every resident and stakeholder equally, and respectfully.  Together, we will develop a Comprehensive Plan that establishes practical ways to address the threat of sea level rise, to improve the vitality of our economy, and to ensure that our community maintains access to sufficient housing options for families to continue our tradition of providing all volunteer Fire and EMS services.


With your help and support in the June 2021 Primary election, I look forward to beginning an exciting new chapter for Piermont in 2022.
