I remember in elementary school we used to get graded on “how well one worked with others.” I used to get As for this and I guess those skills followed me into adulthood as I try to work with everyone – regardless of partisan affiliation – in order to make the Town of Rochester a better place to live, work, and play. That is why I am endorsed by the Democrats, Republicans, and the Conservatives. People respect and appreciate the fact that I reach across party lines to work out solutions to what is best for our community while at the same time not compromising my core values.
The only party that didn’t endorse me was the Independence Party which does not have a democratic selection process. It certainly looks like their candidate got a failing grade and “does not play well with others”.
Supervisor, Town of Rochester
