Norm McCumiskey Running For Hornell Common Council Again

June 1, 2017

HORNELL, NY – Hornell 4th Ward Republican Alderman Norm McCumiskey is running again for the Hornell Common Council. McCumiskey issued the following statement:

I am delighted to announce I will be seeking re-election as the 4th Ward Alderman. I have valued my involvement with the Common Council, the Mayor (Shawn Hogan) and city government as the 4th Ward representative over the past four years. It’s very satisfying working behind the scenes to improve my 4th Ward and community. The Common Council currently works great together as everyone on the Council truly wants to improve Hornell. I wish to continue that relationship. I have developed a good working relationship with the department heads such as the police department, codes, and DPW.
Some of the community issues I’m very concerned about as follows: 1) the drug epidemic in our society and its impact on Hornell, 2) the deterioration of homes and the “zombie” properties in our community, 3) the safety of the streets in Hornell. I want to keep Hornell a great place to raise a family, 4) keeping our local taxes low, 5) improving job opportunities in Hornell. If re-elected, I will be devoted to making Hornell a great place to live.
