IN TOM'S WORDS...


My wife Molly and I moved to Webster in 1997. We have raised 7 children over the years who are now ages 22 down to 11. The past 22-years living in Webster have been wonderful. We feel the town has given so much to our family due mainly to its greatest resource…our PEOPLE!


Webster people have the rare combination of being down-to-earth, highly motivated for personal and professional growth and success, and truly caring about their neighbors.


I am committed to give back to my family’s hometown that has given so much to us. That is why I am running for Webster Town Supervisor. I know Webster can and should be the best place to live for its people both today and the future.


I have been a CPA and business owner for over 20 years. I want to use my business experience and love of Webster to bring leadership that works for its people.

  • I believe the Town Supervisor should be a caretaker for the people.
  • I believe in fiscal responsibility.
  • I believe leadership should NOT be partisan. It should be guided by pragmatism. I want the best for ALL of Webster’s people.
  • I believe actions speak louder than words.
  • I believe the BEST ideas for the town come from the Town’s people and political leaders should listen.

Partisan politics is NOT leadership and there is NO place for that in Webster. The vitriolic messaging that seem to rule the politics of the day do not help people. I will not campaign or lead using negative messages.

If I am fortunate enough to become Webster Supervisor, I will be a caretaker for the town that demands fiscal responsibility and wise investment in our future.

  • I believe respectful face to face communication will always produce better results that vitriolic typing into a social media platform
  • I believe if you are an outspoken critic of the town’s leadership….. GET INVOLVED. You are either part of the problem or part of the solution and simply critiquing is NOT the solution. The more involved the townspeople, the MORE we can accomplish.
  • I believe that the Webster government employees and Webster people if given a positive cultural platform can achieve great things for the town
  • I believe the BEST ideas for the town come from the Town’s people and NOT from its political leaders.

Over the past few years I have watched as extremism and vitriol has taken center stage and permeated into our country’s politics. I can assure you, that is NOT leadership and there is NO place for that in Webster.


As Webster Town Supervisor, my main goal is simply to leave the town in a better place for the present and future.

I’d appreciate your support to do just that.
