I have worked in the Town of Mount Hope Highway Department since May of 1998.  I have been the Highway Superintendent since

January 1, 2008.  I am presently the President of the Orange County Highway Superintendents Association.  As President of the OCHSA I was instrumental in beginning a fundraising golf outing, which raised $5,000 for Orange County 4-H Park here in Mount Hope, last year.  This year we are giving our proceeds to the Hudson Valley Honor Flight.

As a Highway Superintendent it is very important to me to continue my education each year; attending as many classes, seminars and conferences as I can.

I have lived in the Town for 31 years with my wife Amy.  We have two grown children, and expecting our first Grandchild (7-2017).
