I first want to say “thank you” to everyone who voted in this last election. Whether you voted for me or not, it is truly a gift that we live in a country where we are all free to voice our opinions and be heard.
These last three months of campaigning throughout the Borough have given me some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. From establishing a core team filled with dynamic, passionate, and skilled volunteers, to knocking on hundreds of doors explaining my ideas to voters (or as my fiancé, Ally, calls it “giving the longest elevator pitch of all time”), I can honestly say I learned more than I ever thought possible. We ran a campaign based on positivity and new ideas and I think that really resonated with voters in our Borough.
Dunmore means a lot to me, but I am not blind to the fact we have our problems. We have a landfill that is too large, an antiquated downtown, and roads that need paving. We need new leaders in our Borough government that will face these challenges head-on, rather than pretend they don’t exist.
A few of my main goals as mayor are to revitalize Dunmore Corners, finally put in place a road paving plan, and activate a “Community Advisory Board” to ensure we are engaging with the professional and talented residents of Dunmore.
I plan to come into office in January with a fresh outlook on how to get these things done and make other meaningful improvements to our Borough. Along with a newly energized Council, we can improve Dunmore’s health, safety, finances, and set us on a path to a brighter future.
I have big plans for this little Borough and I think we have tons of potential to move it into the future with fresh thinking and new ideas. I sincerely thank you all for putting your faith and trust in me to move Dunmore forward.
