United Monroe Endorses Neil S. Dwyer for Trustee of the Village of Monroe
I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Trustee of the Village of Monroe. As a resident of the Village of Monroe since 1987, I have come to know so many of the village residents through my parish, Sacred Heart Church, my business and my community involvement.
I started my construction company, Dwyer & Leavenworth, Inc. based in Monroe, NY in 1983 and recently celebrated 30 years in business. In 1986, I married my wife, Georgette, a life-long resident of Monroe and local business owner of Sister Act Hair & Nail Salon located in the Village. We have one son, Neil Jr., who is a junior at The University of Miami majoring in broadcast journalism.
In my industry, the one clear lesson I have learned is that you need to have a good ear and eye to hear and see what the customer is asking of you and to meet and exceed their expectations. In growing my business, I have come to appreciate this most important lesson as it has played a part in all aspects of my life, and I firmly believe it will play a critical role in working for all the people of the Village of Monroe.
My civic-minded attitude, given to me by my parents, has allowed me to seek and find the many ways that I have been able to participate and support my community and continue to do so. My belief in community service began soon after arriving in Monroe with activities including Cub Scout Assistant Pack Leader #340, Boy Scout Assistant Troop Leader #440, Past Finance Chairman of Sacred Heart School in Monroe, Current Board Member of Burke Catholic Development Committee, Past Treasurer of Burke Catholic Parent Club and member of Spirited Spokes Charity Bike Run. Currently, I serve as a member of the Village of Monroe Architectural Appearance Review Board and as a member of the executive board of United Monroe. As a parishioner of Sacred Heart Church in Monroe, my family and I have had many opportunities to participate with our neighbors in our community to bring positive and sustainable change to all residents of Monroe for today and the future.
I will bring my energy, respect and work ethic to the position of Trustee for the Village of Monroe and respectfully ask for your vote on Election Day, March 18, 2014.
Thank You. Neil S. Dwyer
The United Monroe Party was created in 2013 by a group of non-partisan, concerned citizens in response to the unfair and unbalanced decisions made by the Monroe Town Board.
The goal of United Monroe was to replace the 3 Town Board members who were up for election in November 2013 since the sitting Board was clearly not representing all of the people of Monroe, but instead, were representing the voting bloc in Kiryas Joel who elected them.
Due to apparent fraud within Kiryas Joel and disenfranchisement of the voters outside of Kiryas Joel on election day, the United Monroe party lost their bid for Town Board.
The election results were clear. United Monroe received 97% of the vote outside of Kiryas Joel. The sitting Board received 99% of the vote within Kiryas Joel.
United Monroe has become part of a larger movement for political and environmental action within the greater Hudson Valley Region.
