What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?

I have been a resident of Ringwood since 2003, and have been active in Ringwood by helping set up and publish the Village Voice Newsletter, and working the annual Picnic in August. Also the last four years I have been helping my wife Marlene (Mrs. Santa) bring joy to the children of the village with “Santa Comes to Ringwood” gala, and I am also a member of the Village of Ringwood zoning and planning board. After attending numerous Village board meetings, I found myself being asked for a couple of years by a long time trustee to run for the office of Village Trustee, but did not think I would be needed. After some soul searching I felt my 50 years of business experience could help the Village of Ringwood, and I look forward to working with the residence of the Village of Ringwood in the future, as there is much that needs to be done.
