The city of Hudson was my home for 40 years and is a place I still hold dear to my heart. Growing up in the First Ward on lower Union Street with three brothers and two amazing parents is something I wouldn’t trade for anything. Spending countless nights at the Boy’s and Girl’s Club where I participated in competitive sports and learned how to negotiate with friends under the supervision of the late Moe Crank and Gerald Wood continues to be a time that I think back on fondly.

After a short career (10 years) in the local political arena, my wife and I made the decision to move 30 miles north. The 10 years or so in the local arena of politics was a time of great success, failure and more importantly maturation and learning. From being involved in the two-party system, elected to the Board of Supervisors for three terms, being appointed as Youth Commissioner under the Honorable Richard Scalera, and my ultimate run for mayor, there are lessons that will last me a lifetime.
