    Village of Brockport Elections

    Brockport Village Hall, 49 State Street, Brockport


    Vote Pro-Village:      1 Mayor     2 Trustees

    Why is it important to participate in local government by voting on June 20, 2017? 

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    Local government is the government most critical to its citizens; it’s also the most responsive.  It has to be.  People are passionate and vocal about the quality of life where they live. Brockport residents want their potholes fixed, their leaves picked up in the fall, their sidewalks plowed in the winter, their taxes reduced, and their police force looking out for their safety.  They also want access to and answers from their mayor and village board.  

    Your village is where you wake up in the morning and what you come home to at the end of the day.  Your Village government is the government that has the most impact on the quality of your daily life.  And it’s the government where you, as a voter, have the most input and influence.

    Study the issues and the candidates carefully and vote on June 20th.



    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    Our government is the closest to the people and the most accessible. The more local the government the more impact it has on people's lives and the more influence the people have on their government and how it impacts the residents' way of life.


    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    Because elections matter. Community matters. Our neighborhoods matter. Our families matter. Our safety matters. It is important for all citizens to have their say in the future of our Village. Voting is critical to that end.

    Carol Hannan, 
    Mayoral Candidate


    Dear voters,

    You will soon have the privilege and responsibility of personally affecting the course of Brockport’s future, by casting your votes in our village election. Choice is essential to democracy, and voters, a choice that could change the direction of the Board of Trustees will soon be yours.  Do you want the status quo or do you want change?   Kevin McCarthy, Kris Bonczyk and I became candidates to offer you a change from the last four years.   Although we like murals, festivals and boathouses, they aren’t our priorities.  Blue Collar Brockport candidates stand for positive, necessary, innovative change. Please take the time to learn about ALL candidates and their visions for the future of Brockport.  Kevin, Kris, and I will cast our ballots on June 20th and we urge you to “get involved” and do the same.  Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Carol Hannan


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate
    The right to vote provides us the ability to select representation that will advocate for what we want. It also provides us the ability to change our representation to better reflect what we as residents want and need.

    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    The bottom line,  you as voter are exercising your right as a citizen of our village to help make the best choice for you. Local elections are the least attended,  yet help determine your health and safety more than any other election.

    The bottom line,  local voters are generally more tuned into their environment than non-voters.

    Please Vote!

    Village of Brockport Elections

    Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 12 noon - 9 pm

    Brockport Village Hall, 49 State Street, Brockport


    Vote Pro-Village:      1 Mayor     2 Trustees

    1. Are Town/Gown relations important and why?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    They’re critical.  The college is a major contributor to the economy and culture of Brockport while a challenge to our tax base.  They are now an engaged partner working with the village on town/gown relations, off-campus student life, and the revitalization of our shared waterfront.  Working together benefits all.


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    Town/Gown relations are very important...we are all living and working in the same community offering our uniqueness to all. The Town/Gown committee offers a forum at which the concerns, needs, and goals of each group can be examined and dealt with proactively. Open communication and partnership in dealing with our shared community is far more productive and constructive leading to a better quality of life for all residents in the village. Through the Town/Gown committee, perception and perspective can be learned, discussed and accepted while working together on village issues.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    The Village and College are inseparably bound together. We are two symbiotic communities. The College is our largest employer; Students are a large and important part of our population. College facilities an asset to the Village, while Village services, businesses and amenities are an asset to the College.

    We are working with the College to educate the students living off-campus about the rights and responsibilities of living in a neighborhood. Code Enforcement and the College are working together to insure that off-campus housing is safe.
    We are also working with the College and the Town on the Waterfront Revitalization Grant.
     Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, 
    Mayoral Candidate


    Yes; obviously important!  Open, frank dialog is essential to improving mutual interests/ concerns:

    1. Students affect the village economy and quality of life both positively and negatively.

    2. Students are “soft targets” for crime and exploitation.

    3. Students may perpetuate crimes, ie drug houses.

    4. Dissolution will eliminate the Brockport Police Department.


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    I believe that they are important.  The Village has a great resource in The College and it needs to be utilized.  Without The College at Brockport, our Main St would not be able to survive as it currently is.  Every pizza and wing spot, Hair Salon, The Strand and Lift Bridge Bookstore would be facing much harder financial times than they already do.  The village and the college both win if we have a strong community that cares about both. 


    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    Yes, they are very important. The College is a greatly underused and or underappreciated entity that we need to foster relationships with for the good of both. The village and the college both win if we have a strong community that cares about both.

    The college has gone to great length to update and improve its facility. The village looking clean and neat along with offering local eateries, tour opportunities, etc. only adds to the college experience. 

    The bottom line- we need to coexist better.

    2. What would you do to preserve single

    family ownership in Brockport? 

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    Brockport’s safety, good schools, walkability, vibrant Main Street, and cultural events invite family living.  Potential villagers check out our welcome video at brockportny.org which has been watched 6800 times.  We are partnering with the BCSD and the College to promote Brockport living through social and other media.


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    Issues important to single families are always safety, reasonable costs and recreational opportunities. We offer plenty of diverse, multi generational recreation opportunities. Our community policing offers safety to our residents. Being persistent about holding to the tax cap while seeking non village taxpayer $$ allows us to maintain and develop those amenities that make a village a village. I would like to see the village seek out grants and incentive opportunities that would financially assist and encourage single family ownership. Lastly, we need to communicate all that our village has to offer.


    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    We have an attractive, walk-able community, with parks, neighborhoods and a Victorian business district. Strong Code enforcement continues to improve the aesthetics of our neighborhoods. A new Comprehensive Plan, with updated zoning, will guide us to strengthen those neighborhoods.
    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate

    1. Lower taxes.

    2. Clean up neighborhood blight!

    3. Form a privately owned “Main Street LLC,” like in Perry, NY, to rehab houses and sell them to families.

    4. Decrease “quality of life” issues!

    5. Make funds available for low income or senior residents to improve the exterior of their homes.


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    I will investigate and pursue different programs to assist young families like mine to move in to the Village.  Through potential tax incentives for single family home purchases or the conversion of current rental properties back to single family homes, I want to make the Village a destination for young families. 

    I will also focus on the Village comprehensive plan and push to complete it.  This comprehensive plan will provide a blueprint for Village housing and its current situation.  The completion of this comprehensive plan should be a priority and would help with resident’s concerns over rentals and potential moratoriums that have been discussed.


    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    The single-family home owners are the back bone to our neighborhoods. Unfortunately, many streets are beyond the tipping point of rental versus single family owner occupied housing. This, in itself, is undesirable for many buyers.

    I would enact, through the comprehensive plan, district overlays that protect neighborhoods from the tipping point of rental versus owner occupied.

    I would offer tax incentives for converting from rental to owner occupied that has been successful in other towns similar to ours.

    Making landlords responsible would go a long way in fixing this problem as well.

    3. What skills do you bring to the position of Mayor/Trustee?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    Proven leader, good communicator; highly organized problem solver; well-honed research and analytical skills; determination and energy; ability to work with others regardless of their views, responsive and available to constituents; commitment to networking—from Brockport to Sweden to Monroe County to Albany. Persistence.  Optimism—with a sense of humor.  


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    I tend to be an organized, sequential and persistent type woman. I enjoy researching a topic and hearing the opinions, ideas and dreams of other people. I believe that I am approachable and a good listener while being firm yet fair when it comes to making decisions that will affect our residents in the village. I am not quick to decide on an issue, I am more comfortable pondering, discussing and researching before making a decision. I am willing to work to maintain and expand on the vitality of the village.


    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    As employee of a small business I bring a commitment to improving the quality of life for every segment of our community and an understanding of the intricate relationship between the College, long term residents and the commercial parts of our community. I see students both as neighbors and customers. The business background has also given me an appreciation for good budgeting. 

    As a scientist I bring analytic skills and the background necessary to read complex documents including environmental reports.
    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate

    1. 4+ years as a village trustee.

    2. Successfully rehabbing houses and selling them to families.

    3. 30+ years setting and achieving goals as a Special Ed teacher.

    4. Personal skills: creative problem solving, a work ethic and motivation second to none, a graduate administrative degree, union experience.

    5. A love of my hometown.


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    I believe that professional background, age and home life give me a unique blend of experience that the Village board currently doesn’t have.

     I currently serve on the Village Ethics Board and the Tax Relief Task Force.

    I am a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and received an Honorable Discharge.

    I have worked in the health insurance field as a New York State licensed insurance broker for small businesses with a focus on cost savings.

    I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting from The College at Brockport and have worked in Public accounting and in the private sector for international companies with a focus on the auditing of financial statements, policies and procedures.  

    I also represent a large segment of the Village that is not currently represented on the board: a young family with children in the Brockport Central School District.  I believe that this one factor is my greatest asset to the Village Board.  My family struggled with our decision to purchase our home in the village due to the current tax rate and the perception that, until this election year, taxes are not a priority.  I enjoy a good festival or mural but I think most residents would agree that reducing the cost of living in the Village should be priority #1.

    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    My skills I feel are a good fit for our community.  I personally worked for Kodak 36 years, retiring 5 years ago, too young to truly retire.  I myself, through hard work, determination,  and a well thought out plan have made a 2nd career for myself and family.

    I have personally remodeled 6 homes and successfully built my rental business that is doing well today. I have reached out to the neighboring homes of my rental properties creating friendships to ensure their privacy is respected.

    My relationship with my tenants is excellent by giving them the respect and quality housing they can enjoy with the understanding that they are respectful of our homes and neighbors.

    I currently am a member of the planning and historic preservation boards. I am on the town/gown subcommittee and tax relief group for the village.

    I have volunteered helping Carol Hannan remodel  4 homes for the betterment of the community. I also volunteer at the Morgan Manning house.

    What I am most proud of is, I raised 4 children in Brockport that have all gone onto successful careers.  I plan  to continue to reside here and give back to the community whenever possible.

    Questions and Answers below


    Village of Brockport Elections

    Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 12 noon - 9 pm

    Brockport Village Hall, 49 State Street, Brockport


    Vote Pro-Village:      1 Mayor     2 Trustees

    1. As Mayor/Trustee, what will you do to lower taxes?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    Our budgets have stayed under the mandated tax cap all four years. Cost savings to ease the tax burden include municipal solar power, replacing all municipal lighting with LEDs, buying back our streetlights.  Lobbying the legislature for aid for tax exempt property (SUNY = 65% of Brockport’s property value).


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    In our village we are faced with the same challenges and rising costs of doing business as other municipalities...employee benefits (health and retirement) along with rising costs of maintaining infrastructure and services. We need to continue to keep the budget under the tax cap while maintaining these services for our residents. Our active and persistent pursuit of grant $$, municipal solar, street light buyback, and continuing to push for SUNY Impact $$ will help to augment the amenities in our village.


    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    I co-chair the Tax Relief Task Force, examining the budgets of all of our municipal departments. Money-saving infrastructure improvements such as the municipal Solar Farm and LED street lighting will bring down costs.  We are working with our State Legislators to enact the SUNY Impact Bill, to provide tax relief to communities that host SUNY campuses.  Community Choice Aggregation, while unrelated to taxes, will reduce electricity costs to our homeowners, and therefore lessen the burden on their budgets.  

     Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, 
    Mayoral Candidate


    I will:
    --- use my decades of labor experience to see that we negotiate true CONTRACT REFORM, something the current board couldn’t and didn’t do.
    -- continue my idea of energy efficient lighting through to completion.
    -- actively follow assessment revisions.
    -- encourage development with incentives and zoning reform.

    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    I have experience in both the Health Insurance and Accounting fields which gives me a unique skill set.  Using my experience on the current Village Tax Relief Task Force, and my employment background, I have been exposed to certain costs the Village pays that can be reduced - resulting in significant savings.  The resulting savings would then lower Village expenditures and help to reduce the necessary amount of taxes needed to pay them.

    The Village has a grant writer in place currently on a guaranteed contract amount.  I would renegotiate this contract to be based on a percentage of the amount of the grants awarded to the Village to give greater incentive to this grant writer to work on behalf of the Village.

    I am in agreement with my fellow running mates that proper assessment of all income generating properties would make a difference with the end result being fair assessments for everyone.


    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    I would lower taxes by several avenues. Economic development using a grant writer or village manager can bring tax revenue that more than offsets the cost and time to make that happen.

    A pilot program, (payment in lieu of taxes) on all tax-free entities within the village that makes it fair for all tax payers.

    Proper assessment of all income-generating properties to make fair assessments for everyone.

    All future contracts negotiated by independent agency that is directly tied to the tax cap and aligned with other similar municipalities. 

    2. How can the village encourage landlords 

    to take proper care of their properties?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    We are already doing that. Code Enforcement’s annual Exterior Property Maintenance survey assures that all property owners, not just landlords, maintain their properties.  A forthcoming publicly accessible Google document lists all rentals in the village with current certificates of occupancy.  A Public Nuisance/Points and Penalties law is also forthcoming.


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    By consistently and fairly enforcing codes across the board as we have been doing. We are currently researching the concept of a Public Nuisance (Points and Penalties) Law. Thirdly, education of our newest landlords as to good housing practices in order to enhance their ability to keep their rental properties up.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    Involve landlords in discussions of the Public Nuisance (also known as Points and Penalties) and Nuisance Party laws before these are written into our Village Code. They can use these laws as a tool to help write leases and to protect their property and investments. Code enforcement will continue to work with landlords to bring properties into compliance, with the focus being compliance rather than punishment.

    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate

    Only some landlords have a “them vs. us” mentality against village codes and property upkeep.  I would first try to establish a dialog with them.   If dialog fails, however, we must investigate all reasonable solutions, such as “points and penalties,” and enact options to uphold our laws.


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    I take great pride in the appearance of my home, this is not only a reflection of me but helps to keep property values up. I believe that by enforcing our current codes and giving proper support to our Code Enforcement Officers we can make a difference.

    It will take everyone working together to keep our Village the “Victorian Village on the Erie Canal” the picturesque place we want it to be.


    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    Very simply have hard fast rules that apply to all landlords that enforce our current codes.

    Meet with landlords, college students and officials, along with police, to discuss their concerns as well as with home owners of adjacent properties to discuss how to improve current conditions.

    3. How will you ensure future union contracts are in line with tax-saving practices in other municipalities?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    The current union contracts (2016-18, 2016-19) are the first with union members paying into health care.  It’s a start; union members’ share of health care costs must increase with successive contracts and rising benefit costs.  We work with our benefits broker to find cost effective health care plans.


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

    Doing the research in current trends regarding health and retirement benefits across New York. Comparing those findings with our employees benefits and then presenting a reasonable compromise to the benefits in contracts taking into account demographics of our community. Educating our employees with explanations of insurance benefits scenarios along with village budget constraints.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent

    When the Village Tax Relief Task Force report is finished, it will most likely focus on the need to reduce the cost to our taxpayers of health care and retirement benefits. This document will reflect the strong voices of Village residents and their recommendations that can be used in the negotiations. We also need to carefully study other municipal contracts before negotiation starts, and use them where appropriate.
    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate

    1. My union experience will be invaluable. 

    2. My board won’t ignore data on comparable municipal contracts.

    3. Contract language won’t be overlooked. My education of board members, based on my experience, will correct that unfortunate oversight. 

    4. Hire an outside negotiator?  Possibly.

    5. Tough decisions?  If the buck stops with me, I’m ready.

    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

    My employment history has given me an ability to understand the biggest factor in the cost of the contracts in place: Health Insurance contributions paid for by the Village. By utilizing available information on other municipalities’ costs in this area, I am confident that negotiations can be productive in reducing what the Village currently pays. 

    If the Village of Brockport is to remain, there needs to be agreement and an understanding by all departments and employees that cost cutting needs to happen now to ensure the future of the Village.

    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

    Have data from all local similar communities and have independent negotiator to negotiate for a fair and tax cap-friendly contract.

    Brockport Village Hall, 49 State Street, Brockport


    Vote Pro-Village:      1 Mayor     2 Trustees



    1. What will be your top priority starting day 1? 

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

    Completing the initiatives that we’ve begun: 

    ŸPublic and party nuisance laws

    ŸThe municipal solar farm

    ŸLED municipal lighting

    ŸStreetlight buyback from National Grid

    ŸLocal waterfront revitalization planning grant leading us to a Comprehensive village plan

    ŸContinued lobbying for state AID to SUNY municipalities

    ŸClean Energy Community status. 


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent
       My top priority as a member of the current Village Board is to continue to work on the projects that we have started in the 2013-2017 term...Comprehensive plan, Code review and revisions, Waterfront revitalization strategy planning grant with the Town of Sweden and College at Brockport, Points and Penalties Law, Community Choice Aggregation along with the Clean Energy Community initiatives regarding solar energy and alternative energy. I will also continue to support and actively participate as a Village Trustee liaison with the Brockport Merchants Association, Greater Brockport Chamber of Commerce, Seymour Library Board, BISCO and the Brockport Arts Festival, Village of Brockport Planning Board, Zoning Board, Code Review Committee, Code Enforcement Office, Walk!Bike!Brockport!, and Brockport Police Department. This support will include effective discussion with these working groups and communicate matters to the Village Board- all on behalf of the Village residents.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent
       My top priority is to continue working to improve our neighborhoods. The Public Nuisance and Nuisance Party laws, which we plan to have in place before the start of the academic year, will help to promote good relations among neighboring families, students and landlords. We are starting work on a new Comprehensive Plan, which will direct our efforts to strengthen our neighborhoods, as well as our businesses. I plan to involve the Housing Task Force in the development of the new Comprehensive Plan, and am working with the Code Review Committee to update every chapter of our Village Code, also in preparation for the Comprehensive Plan.

     Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, 
    Mayoral Candidate

    I will immediately outline yearly and long-term goals, to expedite:

    1. completion of a revised comprehensive plan. 

    2. tax savings.

    3. code revisions;  improving “quality of life” issues and code enforcement.

    4. housing improvements: zombie houses, blighted houses and neighborhoods, help for senior homeowners, etc.

    5. public concerns affecting a majority of residents


    Kris Bonczyk,
     Trustee Candidate

       Begin the process of making the Village of Brockport a more financially sound place to live and place a greater  focus on necessary improvements instead of projects that will only benefit a very small portion of Village residents.


    Kevin McCarthy,
     Trustee Candidate

    Address what I feel is a non-sustainable budget.




    2. Are you for or against dissolving the village and why?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

       The village board worked assiduously last year to defeat dissolution—again. Were the Village of Brockport to dissolve, our police force would go, our town taxes would increase, and we would be saddled with special taxing districts to cover street lighting, sidewalks, water, etc.  

    There’s much to lose, little to gain.


    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent
       I am against dissolution...dissolution will not solve the problem of high taxes and will diminish the services that our village needs in order to provide good quality of life to our residents.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent
       I am strongly against dissolving the Village, and have worked hard to fight both dissolution attempts. Dissolution would result in cuts to services necessary to a college community, with at best a small decrease in taxes. The Village of Brockport is very different from the Town of Sweden outside the Village, with different needs, especially in Policing and Code Enforcement. 
       We are improving the relationship between the Village and Town Boards, so that we can work together in the areas where our needs overlap.
    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate

    -- Community policing will end. Sheriffs can’t and won’t keep us as protected as the Brockport Police. That’s the truth.

    -- Do people want to live in dangerous places? No.

    -- Effective, independent code enforcement will end.

    -- Property owners will lose equity.

    -- Residents will be measurably worse off, so I’m against dissolution.


    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

       This is a topic that has caused a great divide in our Village.  I am for what is best for the residents of this Village: this includes the existence of the police department, reducing spending (which helps to lower the tax rate) and greater enforcement of Village property codes. I will not promise that in the next 3 years that there will not be another dissolution vote but my focus if elected is to do all I can to avoid another vote.

    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate
       Against. The main reason is to have our local police force keep our streets safe by their familiarity within our village. Another big reason is the village population density is much different from the town, with a college population that doubles its size.

    3. Some people appreciate the value of our local police dept. Some don't. Where do you stand and why?

     Revitalize Brockport

    Margay Blackman, Mayoral Incumbent

       The community knowledge and response time of the Brockport police are unparalleled.  No densely populated area is crime free; drugs and crime are factors in Brockport. All police departments are expensive, but I believe the Brockport Police Department is essential to keeping us and our businesses safe and secure.

    Kathy Kristansen, Trustee Incumbent

       A police department in a college community is a necessity not a luxury. The idea of proactive, reliable and prompt community policing lends itself to a safer and more pleasant quality of life.

    Annie Crane, Trustee Incumbent
       Strong community policing is essential for quality of life in the Village. Because of our high population density and large number of students, who are a vibrant but young and transient segment of our community, our needs for policing are distinct from that of the surrounding rural areas. Alcohol and drug crimes, in particular, require police who know the village well. 
    Blue Collar Brockport

    Carol Hannan, Mayoral Candidate
    -- I’ve publically supported the BPD for over 12 years.

    -- Since learning about what they do firsthand, I appreciate them more.

    -- I fought for full staffing to reduce overtime and will negotiate contract revisions, but…….

    -- I totally support the Brockport Police Department and officers who serve us with courage and compassion.  

    Kris Bonczyk, Trustee Candidate

       I believe that the Village police department is a great asset to the Village.  Many of the officers grew up in the Village and are proud to serve the Brockport Community.  I also believe that there are areas of spending that can be evaluated and some savings can be found.  This should not be interpreted as an attack on the cost of the police department but more of an acknowledgement of some Village resident’s concerns.

    Kevin McCarthy, Trustee Candidate

       I value the police department as I stated above. Brockport is the largest village in Monroe County and has a SUNY campus within it. There is only one village in NY State that does not have a local police department to offset the concerns that come with having a SUNY college within it. It is also a known fact that response time by a local police force is much better than response time by a county force.
