  1. Election Day– Election Day was held on Tuesday, November 5th. I want to congratulate Town of Montgomery Supervisor Elect Brian Maher and wish him the best in his first term. I’d also like to congratulate and thank our current Town of Montgomery Supervisor Rod Winchell for his service to our town and wish him all the best in future endeavors. Last but not least, I want to thank all of my supporters, the residents of Maybrook and my family for their support during my campaign. I had an opportunity to meet many people and formed new friendships along the way. I’m very proud of our accomplishments in the Village of Maybrook during my tenure as Mayor. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we will keep chipping away at our goals. The Village Board and I will continue to strive in keeping our village safe for our residents, to improve our infrastructure, welcome smart growth with light industry to offset the tax burden on residents and work towards our goal to revitalize our Main Street. I’m proud to represent the Village of Maybrook as your Mayor and I will continue to push forward in our efforts of making the Village of Maybrook the best village in our town.
