Last night my opponent opened the meeting by attacking my campaign with misguided and desperate threats. Everything in my statement, posted last Friday is accurate and true. I am the candidate with the maturity and knowledge base to keep Ossining on an upward trajectory, as I have for two terms. No amount of noise or threats will change that.
Following my opponent’s opening statement at the work session, several of us engaged in a discussion about the Safe Housing Community Partners meeting that the Village convened earlier this week. Around minute 17 of the video, I comment on my experience working with leaders in land use planning and economic development in both the public and private sector, and further clarify my statement of what makes for a wise approach to thoughtful economic development.

Instead of making a spectacle our public meetings, we need Village government to lead an intelligent process for engaging the community in shaping the future of Ossining.
