Bringing Prosperity

I am a retired supervisor from the New York City Police Department Counter Terrorism Division, a unit in which I served as an integral member. I assisted in its development with a multimillion-dollar budget and personnel management.

I also have served as a chair at Briarcliffe College in Patchogue. As a licensed real estate agent, I know the value of land, property acquisitions, property contracts and farming transferred development rights. Currently, I am a professor at the American Military University and hold various degrees in business and public management.

While I have not sought public office in the past, I bring a new business perspective to Riverhead. I care about the impacts of the tax burden on our seniors, young families and every taxpayer. If elected, I will work with the Town Council to initiate and protect the needed services for our elderly, veterans and our youth. Also of importance is addressing our school overcrowding, which is burdening our taxpayers.

Lastly, for any town to flourish, town leaders need to promote economic development while maintaining the town’s charm. I will endlessly fight to maintain our police department and never agree to sell our most valuable asset, our water district. We also need to maintain an effective workforce and return Town Hall to the people.

As Riverhead’s chief financial officer, I will monitor our budget ensuring that all state and federal funds are collected in a timely fashion. I will make tough but good business decisions for all of Riverhead. I am confident that my values and ability to effectively plan and lead will bring prosperity to Riverhead in the future.

I look forward to working with my community as your town supervisor. Please visit my website for further information:
