His strong ties to the Freeport community have allowed him to be active and supportive of school district initiatives, and he continually works toward improving the Freeport schools.
“Anthony is one of the most civic-minded people I know,” said Legislator Curran. “And it comes from his heart, and from pride in his family’s deep Freeport roots. Anthony also happens to be kind, calm and down-to-earth – one of those rare gems that make the world a better place.”
