Kenmore Days - June 14th - 16th. Be there!

I have worked for the Village for 30 years, having previously served as Acting Justice and as Village Attorney. I have enjoyed all of the positions I have held in the Village and feel that this background has afforded me the opportunity to really know and understand the Village government and the community it serves.

As part of my job, I am fortunate to work very closely with the Mayor and Board of Trustees, village employees, businesses and residents. We are so lucky to have a municipality where there exists such a strong working relationship between all of these people, who are committed to providing quality service to the community and to making Kenmore a great place to live and work.
