About me


After years of local advocacy and working in Town Hall, I have learned a lot.  I believe this information will help the public understand board meetings and events happening in Putnam Valley.  I have been going to the Planning Board, Town Board, and some Zoning Board meetings, and have reported on what is happening.  Putnam Valley is a lively Town.

Impartiality is a myth.  Everyone perceives events through their own set of biases and emotional filters.  My intent is to put the information in the public realm.  Clearly my opinion of that information is included. I know that some people have enjoyed the content, and I hope that more residents will be involved effectively in local government.
