Today I officially announce my candidacy for Mayor of the City of Syracuse and  ask for your support. I served for nearly ten years under three administrations as a City attorney and I have seen every Mayor that I have served under repeatedly make the same mistakes. I feel that I possess a unique insight as to how the City government works for its residents and business owners and also how it fails them.

This campaign will be about people and policies, not political parties. My foremost interest is of, and for, the people of Syracuse. The voice of the people deserves to be heard, and I promise to be an avid listener.
