WHY MOUNT VERNON, NY
Shaping The Future
As a resident of Mount Vernon for over 38 years I’ve been blessed with the wonderful opportunity to successfully raise a family and expand my construction and development business. This city has given me more than I could have ever imagined and I’m proud to call Mount Vernon my home. Over the past few years however I’ve watched our taxes go up along with unemployment, while our basic services and quality of life has declined and taken a turn for the worst. We need a visionary leadership that will create new possibilities and opportunities – and ultimately a brighter future – for our residents. There are many challenges Mount Vernon faces, however these obstacles are not so formidable that they cannot be overcome with strong responsible leadership and a powerful vision for success.
