Mr. Hickey states:
I am committed to a better Watertown community. I have invested 15 years responding to emergencies with Guilfoyle. I am a retired NYS Corrections Officer. I was on the 911 installation commission bringing Emergency phone service to Jefferson County.
I have attended almost every City Council Meeting and work session for the past 5 years. In 2015 and 2018, I ran for the interim City Council seats that Peter Clough and Mark Walczyk held. In 2019, I ran for and was on the final ballot for a Council seat. In 2021, I applied for the interim City Council seat that Jesse Roshia held. I continue to be involved in City Government as a member on the Zoning Board of Appeals. I established the Watertown City Pools fund that was created by Resolution with the NNY Community Foundation. I am the Administrator for the Watertown Neighborhood Watch Goes Citywide Program. I am a member of the Steering Committee for the Zoning Re-write program currently being worked. I am a member of the Alliance for a Better Community Program. I have lived on Pawling St for 42 years, so I am deeply committed to Watertown. I continue to invest myself where I can help the city to its best. Thank you for supporting me.
