My name is Theresa Alano. I’m running for Clarkson Town Supervisor. I retired as Brockport Postmaster in October of 2016. Since then I’ve been primary caregiver to my 99 year-old mother-in-law, and a member of two quilt guilds through which I contribute to several charitable causes.
As Postmaster, I managed budgets and staffs for offices both large and small, including Webster, Pittsford, Albion and Hamlin. I was appointed as one of Western New York’s few Fact Finders, charged with investigating ethical violations in areas such as sexual harassment, creating a hostile work environment, and discrimination. I have also worked as a Labor Relations Specialist. I was able to fight for and procure the resources needed to repair Brockport’s Historical Post Office. I was an active member of the National Association of Letter Carriers as a union steward.
I feel the unique skill set acquired while working for the Postal Service has prepared me to be your next Town Supervisor. I am able to work well with people on both sides of the aisle; I have the ability to communicate well, which has always included an open-door and transparent style, and I have skills to enforce a zero tolerance policy regarding ethical violations.
Over the past several years, I have seen politics divide good marriages, end lifelong friendships and put a rift through our nation, and I even see it happening here in Clarkson. I would like to see our town rise about partisan politics and, during our bicentennial year, show the country how, together, as neighbors, we can get things done. I truly believe it will take a bi-partisan board for everyone to feel represented. Thank You.
