My name is Steve Dickerson Sr. and I’m running for the open position of Town Supervisor in Alma New York.
For you who don’t know me I want to give you some background of my life in Alma NY. I was raised in the Town of Alma, living on the Pump Station Road. I graduated from Wellsville High School in 1969 and joined the Army in 1970 serving six years. In 1991 my wife Karen Dickerson an I returned to Alma and took over the family homestead where I was raised.
I have lived in Alma for fifty years and plan on continuing to do so. My wife and I raised three of our six children in this valley. Three of our children that have moved back to Alma realizing that this is a good place to raise a family.
My work history started when my Army tour ended, I was hired at Dresser-Rand and like many, was unexpectedly laid off. I went to work at SCR Machining which is a small job shop and when that company sold out I went to BO-GES. I was then talked into teaching machining and was hired at BOCES in Belmont. In 1994 Alfred State College started a Machining course, so I applied and was hired. During this time at Alfred State College I did a number of training courses for companies in the area.
I feel through my years teaching young adults, having six children and blessed with sixteen grandchildren, I have learned to be patient, compromising, dedicated and firm but not to firm when needed.
I’m like a lot of you that want someone that will do what is right for the town and the residents. I will listen to what the residents want and be willing to compromise for a solution that satisfies the majority of the residents. I feel that I am that person. I would like your support at the primary on June 22nd, 2021 and the in the general election in November.
Thank you for reading this and your support.
Steve Dickerson Sr.
