I believe that local government truly makes a difference, and addressing the issues our friends and neighbors are concerned and passionate about is the next step for a brighter future.
Here are a few of the issues I plan to tackle in office:
As a business owner, Stephen knows how to look at the dollars and cents and determine how funds can be better allocated.
The cost of doing business in New York State is exorbitant, but Vestal, as the commercial center of Broome County, should be a place where businesses want to be.
Though I’m pro-business, I also understand that residents deserve the sanctity of their residential neighborhoods, and that doesn’t include businesses or college developments.
Tax rates for both homes and businesses in Vestal are driving away potential residents and employers; we need to mitigate this to grow our community.
