It is with this in mind that I ask for your support in allowing me to continue to serve.
As a life-long resident of East Meadow, I have been a volunteer with the fire department, serving as both a paramedic and firefighter, for over 20 years.

I assisted the East Meadow School District is establishing their defibrillator program, coordinated our community's blood drives, established the vial of life program and ran our Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive.
While on the Board, I have assisted in upgrading our dispatch center with state of the art equipment which handled over 400 emergency calls through Hurricane Sandy, recovered over $15,000 in grant monies to aid in the purchase of new and advanced ECG machines, gear, apparatus, and the latest in firefighting equipment, while remaining ever vigilant in ensuring that the resident's tax dollars are spent in the best interests of the community and fire department.
