Building Better Communities Through Responsible Government

With a strong background in finance and a profound understands of business I wanted to

use my skills to add value in the community. That is why I have been involved in local

government for the last three years as a Trustee for the Village of Scotia. My desire to

run for County Legislator came from a realization that these values were needed in our

county government.


I believe that government is there to protect and serve the people it represents. While

keeping taxes to a minimum. I have a proven track record in doing this for the tax payers

in Scotia and look forward to extending these values throughout the county.


I am a native of Scotia and reside here with my wife of 15 years, Nicole. I am the father

of four children Nathan Jerard, Zachary Jerard, Noah Jerard and Emma Mathes. I am a

graduated of Siena College with a B.A. in English and have studied abroad at regents

College of London. Currently I serve as a member of the Retail Leadership team for

Berkshire Bank as a VP and Regional Manager for the New York Capital market.


Throughout my seventeen years in banking, I have held several positions of increasing

responsibility with other financial institutions, including Relationship Associate for the

Private Bank, Relationship Manager of Financial Benefits and Branch Manager of several

branch locations. I also run a successful commercial cleaning business and have done so

for the last ten years.
