Brad grew up in Horseheads and is a Horseheads High alumnus, graduated from the College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse University and later studied Business at Elmira College. Brad was working in Los Angeles when he met his wife Debi, who happened to be from Elmira. In less than a year after that meeting, Brad and Debi were married and living back in NY. Three years ago Brad retired after 33 years with Staples as a Strategic Account Manager for National Accounts and made a commitment to begin attending the Village Board meetings.

There is tremendous pressure at the State level to eliminate municipalities, like the Village of Horseheads — We have to fight for our Village!

Brad believes in Fiscal Responsibility and Limited Government, fully accountable to the People. Brad and Debi have two daughters who, with their husbands and 9 grandchildren, also live in the Village, within two blocks of their home, and Brad’s mother lives next door; their son lives in Baltimore and visits often. Brad and Debi want only the best for their family and the Village of Horseheads. Having grown up in Horseheads, Brad cherishes many wonderful memories and looks forward to a promising future for the Village of Horseheads.
