Politics is NOT a spectator sport. Please join us for our monthly meeting usually held on the first Monday of each month (NO August meeting) discussing candidate selections along with other hot topics of local-interest. Ask questions of your elected officials and be on top of events in our Town.
There has never been a better time than now to get involved in your local community and we encourage you to attend our upcoming meetings! (See the calendar tab for time and location of all meetings.)

Town Candidates Platform and Governmental Approach
Fiscal Responsibility, Low Town Taxes, and Common Sense Governance:
The Town of Penfield is responsible for roughly 8% of your total property tax bill and has one of the lowest tax rates of all towns in Monroe County. In fact, some towns have tax rates that are more than double ours. As your representatives and fellow taxpayers, we are committed to providing the services residents need and deserve while maintaining fiscal responsibility at the Town Hall.
● Use common sense and data to guide decisions related to spending, particularly as we recover from COVID pandemic effects. Being conservative with our financial resources is of paramount importance.
● Form a bi-partisan Budget Advisory Council to meet with Supervisor to address financial concerns during budget development process.
Renewed Stewardship of Penfield’s Resources:
Good stewardship of our resources does not end with fiscal responsibility; it also means preserving Penfield’s historical character, conservation of open space, and managing traffic concerns.
