1.) What will be your top priorities if elected to the Town Board?

Halvey — To help the people of Randall in whatever way I can.

Kemp — The beauty of Randall is in its rural character with its open spaces and farmland. Keeping our small-town atmosphere, but also being forward-thinking, is a priority for me. I will always advocate for the responsible use of tax dollars and will encourage the town board to work as a team on behalf of Randall residents. Resident involvement in our town’s processes is also important to me. Good communication is essential.

2.) Why are you the best choice for Supervisor #4?

Halvey — I’m retired, I’ve got the time and I enjoy the work.

Kemp — My job at the Open Arms Free Clinic allows me to use my strengths to coordinate a volunteer workforce and attain the resources to supply life-saving medications to those in need. I have demonstrated being able to learn quickly and take on the leadership necessary in order to enhance the clinic’s medication dispensary program.  In addition to serving in my appointed offices, I was also a Randall firefighter from 2010-2015. Currently, I am serving on the Friends of Community Library board and the advisory committee of Gateway Technical College’s Pharmacy Technician program.  I love this community. I strongly believe that everyone deserves to be heard and respected.
