Like my Facebook Page: Elect Michael Summerfield To Cornwall Town Board


I am very excited to begin the process of change in Cornwall.  For too long the official offices of the Town of Cornwall has been a revolving door of the same recycled members shifting from one role to another over several decades.  Cornwall is at a critical juncture with our town's identity and prosperity at stake - principally because of past decisions by the same people running in this year's campaign.

Now is the time for creative and inspired input - not back-room deals and rubber stamps of proposals.  I am a strong believer in participatory government, open communication and inclusiveness.  I will represent your interests and the best interests of Cornwall with responsible and analytical consideration of the merits of proposals brought before the Board.  Additionally, I will provide "out of the box" thinking for solutions to current problems.
