As Edgewater Councilman, whether it was planting a tree with our schoolchildren on Arbor Day, participating in the annual coastal clean-up, enjoying our summer concerts in the park or being an active participant in council meetings, my priorities have been to promote a high quality of life for our residents while working to keep our taxes consistently amongst the lowest in Bergen County. I have been a resident and homeowner for over 25 years. I am married and have two daughters. My younger daughter attended the Edgewater and Leonia schools. I am proud to say that I have participated in the transformation of Edgewater to a premier Gold Coast Riverfront community.

During the pandemic, I voted in favor of expanded business hours and extension of outdoor venues for our local restaurants. With Dolores Lawlor, I escorted seniors and other residents to Palisades Medical Center for the administration of over 1,000 COVID vaccines on the Edgewater free shuttle bus.

I recommended and voted for funding for new safety equipment and trucks as Council Liaison to the Volunteer Fire Dept, to protect our members and ensure the safety of our residents. In my role as Council Liaison to the Volunteer First Aid Squad, I worked to expedite the re-design and completion of their new quarters in historic old Boro Hall. I voted to approve the master plan in 2014 as a Planning Board member. As a Shade Tree Board member, I am a proponent of utilizing trees and shrubs to further beautify our streets and parks. I was responsible for obtaining grants for the repaving of Edgewater roads as a representative for the South Bergen region of the Bergen County Community Development office. 

I will continue to be an active council member, attending all meetings and local events, focusing on sound decision making and completing work started in 2020 with the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy to create a safe and connected waterfront walkway for all Edgewater residents.

I am committed to this town and will work even harder to keep Edgewater the premier Gold Coast waterfront community it has become as a result of good planning and effective leadership.
