My running mate, Janet Stone McGuigan, and I appreciate the significance of our nomination. We understand the trust that the Democratic Town Committee has placed in us. We will do our best to earn that trust. We believe we are prepared, and we believe that if the voters will invest their time in learning about us then we will prevail in November. We will certainly do our part to reach out to all voters and every community. We will honor any and all invitations to meet anytime and anyplace. We look forward to the debates.  

          We will provide effective management, strong leadership and reasoned judgment. Our focus is to make sure there is room in our capital budget for the necessary capital expenditures of our school system. The Board of Education needs leaders at Town Hall who will work with them shoulder to shoulder, not go toe to toe. I spent eight years on the Board of Education and my granddaughter is a student at North Mianus School, where the ceiling fell in. We are committed to great schools and great teachers.

          Lastly, I spent four years on the Board of Estimate and Taxation and I have a degree in Finance from the University of Notre Dame. Janet and I appreciate that low taxes are a hallmark of our decentralized government and we will not waste your tax payments.

          We look forward to the next two years.
