In his own words
My name is Pat Nolan and I am running for my second full term as village trustee. Over my time as trustee, I have been entrusted to be liaison to: economic support/celebrations, code enforcement, planning and zoning, senior citizens, youth/Palmyra Community Center, personnel and contract negotiations.
The biggest accomplishment for me as a village trustee has been in oversight of major reconstruction projects within the water and sewer departments. Some of the projects include the painting of the water tower on Prospect Hill and the continued upgrading of waterlines and the infrastructure within the Village. In the past two years, I assisted in
bringing the Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority onboard to oversee and manage the Village water and sewer plants. One of my goals is to finish the conversion to the "drive-by automated water meter system" which is currently 75 percent completed.
I am a lifelong resident of Palmyra. I have been actively involved in many community activities and organizations throughout the years. My wife and I have raised our three children here. I know that I can help keep Palmyra a great place for others to raise their families. I will continue to be fiscally responsible; businesses oriented, and work to maintain a safe
environment for all members of our community. I want Palmyra to continue to grow and flourish as the great and proud community it has been all of my life.

In his own words
My name is Richard (Rick) Perry and I am running for Village Trustee. I have been a resident and business owner in the village for 21 years. I have been blessed with six children and a wonderful wife. During my residency I have had the privilege to serve on several committees including: 3 years on the School Board, and 6 years PTO President at the Palmyra Elementary School. Currently I am serving as VP of Pal-Mac Youth Football and Cheer program as well as starting my 6th year on the Palmyra Zoning Board (with the last two years as the Zoning Board Chair). It has been a great experience and I am thankful Mayor Daly asked me to serve.
My business is built on my commitment to good customer service and solution oriented problem solving. I have learned to focus not on the problem but on the solution and that the customers deserve the best service that I can give. I look at the residents/taxpayers of the village of Palmyra as customers that deserve the best service that I can give. My experience as a business owner, active committee member, community member and commitment to serve people will make me the best village trustee.
I would be honored to be your village trustee. My background, good customer service, the ability to address situations with knowledgeable solutions and the desire to tackle a challenge will make you proud to say I am your village trustee. I look forward to your vote on Nov. 6.

In his own words
I would like to take this opportunity to say hello to the residents of the village of Palmyra. I have lived most of my life in the village and am very proud of the beautiful village we have. Palmyra is a wonderful place to live. For the past 29 years my wife and I have lived on Liberty St. and we raised our family here.
How fortunate we are to live in a village that offers us a wonderful array of venues for all residents to enjoy: a Community Center with multiple programs for people of all ages, beautiful fairgrounds that are enjoyed by the entire county with a weeklong agricultural fair and several other events held throughout the year. The village is host to festivals such as Canaltown Days and Pirate Days and home to historical museums and a beautiful library. These are just a few of the amenities the village of Palmyra has to offer. All of these are within walking distance of village residents. I have always loved the richness of the history of this village. I am proud to call Palmyra home.
