Tom DadeyThomas V. Dadey, Jr.
resides in the City of Syracuse with his
wife, Joan, a registered nurse, and his
two young daughters, Erin, 2 and Regan, 1.As a father, businessman and active member of the local community, Tom believes that Central New York is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.
In fact, the Dadey family has lived in this area since the 1860's and his
parents still live at their family farm in southern Onondaga County, where Tom
grew up with his
two brothers and two sisters.
Tom wants to make a difference, to improve the quality of life in Central New York so his
daughters and other young people do not have to leave the area to pursue their dreams.That's why he's
personally committed and passionate about the need for reform in Albany, reducing the State and local tax burden and providing vital services in a more cost-effective and efficient way. Tom is a graduate of Clarkson University and has worked with a number of companies where he's witnessed first-hand that New York's tax burden impedes economic growth and the development of new jobs.Tom is a strong advocate for Workers' Compensation reform to lower the cost of doing business in New York.He
favors aggressively rooting out fraud, waste and abuse in the Medicaid program to save taxpayers money. Tom
has extensive local government experience.He served as Deputy Supervisor and Councilman in the Town of LaFayette from 1994 until 2001.In addition, he served as President of the LaFayette Board of Education and was a Director of the Onondaga-Madison School Boards Association.
This experience gave him an acute understanding of how state government mandates impact our local governments.Tom
is a strong supporter of term limits for elected officials and has also lead by example on this issue, by limiting his
tenure on the town and school boards voluntarily.
As an active leader in the community, Tom
has chaired the Syracuse Chamber of Commerce
Government Relations Committee, served on the Business Council's Government Affairs Committee, the Board of Directors of P.E.A.C.E. Incorporated
