Trustees Seeking Election or Reelection
Hello, my name is Randy Lacelle. I currently reside in Brewerton, NY and have lived in the Cicero area with my wife Tracy for the past twenty years. We have three grown daughters whose families actively use the services of the NOPL libraries. After retiring as a Police Officer from the Syracuse Police Dept. in 2012, I began my new career as a Contract Federal Investigator. As a former NOPL Board of Trustee member, I am looking forward to serving again.
Hi! My name is Maureen Hale and I was born and raised in Central New York and have been a resident of Brewerton for almost 30 years. I started my career as a traffic coordinator for CXtec and became a lead salesperson before taking time off to raise our children. For the past 18 years, I have worked for Syracuse University as an administrative assistant to one of the top researchers in the country and as an office coordinator in Health Services. I also own a portrait photography business and am a licensed real estate salesperson for Procopio Real Estate. My husband and I now have two grown children, and in our spare time, we really enjoy being with our family, traveling, kayaking and raising our dogs (our new kids!).
I look forward to the opportunity of representing Brewerton as a Board of Trustees member at NOPL, and giving back to this wonderful community.
