There will be quite a learning curve. The position not only covers the first ward but the entire city. My hope is to help move Hornell forward in the years to come. As a lifelong resident of Hornell I have some great memories growing up here. A vibrant downtown and a lot of friendly people. I hope to bring pride back into neighborhoods.
My phone is always on and I will address whatever comes my way to the best of my ability. Thank you. “
