Meet the Candidates: Shane Ferraro

Village of Warfield: Ferraro, Shane – Council Candidate

  • Oct. 31, 2014 4:00 p.m.

I am a 43-year-old self-employed business person

I believe the pressing issues of recreation and aging infrastructure will be the challenges facing this council. It is also important to improve communication between the council and the villagers through means of the village web site, and social media.  I was raised in this community, and have chosen to raise my family here as well.  This is the reason I would like to be engaged with the citizens of Warfield to plan the future of this great community.

The recreation and library agreement expires soon, and I will, if elected, sit down with our neighbors and work on a deal that is fair to all parties. This point is very important to all of us, especially the children of Warfield. I believe we need to do a study to identify issues with the infrastructure of Warfield.  We can then prioritize and repair any infrastructure problems and do it the most cost efficient and sustainable way.

In this world, a lot of us use websites or social media for our information. I would encourage that the village website be brought up to date and a Village of Warfield social media site be set up and running so people can voice their opinions on the website.

It is time for our communities to work together, put away our differences and work on our similarities.

The time for change is now.
