By now many of you may know that Ed Dunn, Republican did run for Governor in 2010 as reported by the local news media and you may ask why? Part of the answer is when you see something so wrong in government where so many of our neighbors in the State of New York lost their homes and jobs in the recent recession or were forced to relocate to another State because of high taxes you ask yourself one question?
Is this what I was raised to believe in?
At the time virtually every American family was impacted by the recession, some still remain so even today. To be blunt the record clearly shows a disregard for sound business practices and lack of accountability to the people by those we had elected had led to the recession.
A State and government where those who were in office were partly at fault as to what had happened to the economy, they had endorsed bank deregulation or silently said nothing as taxes kept going up and yet they ask us to reward them to higher office.
We are given a choice, Ed Dunn’s choice at the time was to stand up for those who couldn't and through his voice they would be heard. This is the type of person Ed Dunn is; he is your neighbor of 25 years, a man of humble convictions and through him in this election you the resident of Perinton will be heard!
Ed Dunn is a leader, someone you can count on to get the job done right and a vote for Ed Dunn September 10, 2013 is a vote you can count on! This year there is only one election for Perinton Town Supervisor that counts and that is the primary election on September 10, 2013.
Holding the line on taxes.
Ed Dunn, a self-made local businessman, is presently taking his campaign to the people by going door to door sharing his vision and stating why he is qualified to represent them.
As a businessman he feels strongly that under his administration he will find ways to hold the line on taxes. Over the past 10 years the residents of Perinton have seen their taxes increase by nearly 30 percent, to Ed Dunn this cost is a cost that is unacceptable.
In order to hold the line on taxes Ed Dunn’s first priorities will be to take a hard look at all out going expenditures as they relate to maintaining our towns infrastructure and community needs, without sacrificing the quality of service we enjoy. Cost are controllable, you just have to know how to hold the bottom line down.
One of the areas that he will concentrate on is Perinton’s governmental bid process. As a businessman that has personally bid on government contracts he understands the true costs of goods and the bidding process. Typically bids are issued by government agencies to secure the lowest pricing for a service or product requested. But as Ed Dunn can tell you bid pricing may vary widely and failure to adequately outline a proposed bid typically leads to costly change orders. Once again this is where Ed Dunn’s building and development experience comes into place. In order to properly put out to bid an upcoming project you must be able to read architect, engineering specifications and blue prints. Failure to properly understand what is being asked can be costly in the form of change orders as it relates to any government job.
The other area that needs to be looked at is the overall cost of running the town’s equipment, fuel consumption and administrative costs. Yet these cost saving measures alone will not offset the increased cost of maintaining Perinton’s infrastructure in an inflationary market place. Perinton must look towards the future as it has done in the past and generate new taxable revenue. Failure to do so will result in increased taxes for the average resident and any increase in taxes decrease the overall value of Perinton.
Building towards the future
Future development should address the needs of our community, be designed to add value to our community while maintaining Perinton’s established hometown values. As a builder and developer, Ed Dunn envisions any future development within community, whether commercial or residential, be designed and built to represent our family hometown values. Per Ed Dunn it is one thing to simply build to fill a void; it is another to build a community with value. In order to do so you need to understand land usage, cost and projects designs. To some what may look good on paper, in reality once built leaves a lot to be desired and this is not what Ed Dunn intends on happening as it has in recent projects.
On the subject of apartments, in an earlier statement made by Ed Dunn during his campaign he refers the residents of Perinton to the report commissioned by Perinton in the year of 2000. The report clearly states Perinton does have its fair share of apartments and that Perinton then as well as now should be building towards a retirement community where individual ownership applies. Presently there is a need for this type of community development and the need is growing rapidly. A community as such secures Perinton’s long time tradition of family comes first and allows parents who wish to downsize to stay in a community they love and trust. This is the direction Ed Dunn wants to take our town.
Wegman’s food store
Wegman’s as well as other businesses in Perinton are an integral part of our community. In recent years Wegman’s has expressed a desire to rebuild their store in Perinton; and as it presently stands, it is apparent the residents of Perinton want to see Wegman’s revitalize its store. Under Ed Dunn’s administration he is open to discussing this option with the Town Board and Wegman’s design team, with one exception. The store must project a physical image that represents a warm and welcoming suburban town.
No closed doors
Ed Dunn’s policy as recently stated on Channel 8 News is once again quite clear. If he can’t solve a resident’s concern from the offices of Perinton Town Hall, then he will personally go to the resident’s home to address their concerns. Ed Dunn’s position in the business community is well known; he takes a direct hands on approach to each job he undertakes, and if elected he will take the same approach as Town Supervisor. Ed Dunn’s position is elected officials are there to work for the people.
