OUR FUTURE

Whether you're talking about infrastructure or preparation for extreme weather events, town leaders across the country know that local action is critical to a competitive and sustainable future. 

A vibrant, resilient Pittsford, now and in the future, requires ACTION. Business as usual is not enough. We need new leadership to adapt, grow, and remain the most desirable place to live in western New York.

 

What does a modern approach to leadership look like?

 I’ve listened to your concerns about the angry and unwelcoming atmosphere at Town meetings, feeling excluded or dismissed by the current supervisor, and the minimal opportunity to participate in decision-making. We deserve open, responsive, respectful government. As your Supervisor, I will start by making government processes — communications, forums, volunteer boards, budgetinginclusive and transparent. True leadership starts with setting aside one’s personal pride and agenda, bringing all stakeholders together, and listening. We move forward through dialogue, respectful dissent, and consensus building. We move forward together.

In 2020, amid a global pandemic and record unemployment, our current supervisor proposed a budget that exceeded the tax cap. Thankfully, our Democratic majority held firm against it and won. Pittsford needs a leader committed to lowering the tax burden on residents while championing local business. Of course the Village is an autonomous entity, but the Town and Village are in this together. As Supervisor, I will advocate for policies and practices that keep shop owners in business, and I will collaborate closely with Village leaders to reach our shared economic goals. Together, we must preserve the center of this community and invest in the shared public spaces that make Pittsford strong.

Pittsford’s Green Print was a trailblazing effort 30 years ago. Climate science has come a long way since the 1990s. We must move forward with purpose and urgency. As Supervisor, I will aggressively pursue the Climate Smart Community certification. We will update the Town Code to include green building practices, plant native species in park districts and new developments, and reevaluate public land use to maximize soil health and carbon sequestration. We will transition our fleet of Town vehicles to electric when possible. We will connect our nature trails into a complete network and build sidewalks and other infrastructure so we can commute safely by foot and bike. We will lead a robust sustainability education effort to help residents disrupt the waste cycle, end pesticide use, reduce energy consumption, and be climate smart in our own backyards.
