"As a current member of the Village Board, I'm proud of our many accomplishments, these past four years. The replacement of a much needed substation transformer, upgrades to the water and sewer treatment plant and the upcoming restoration of our historic arch, are just a few of the projects my engineering skills have been beneficial. I also serve on several village committees, where my professional skills have proven to be a valued resource to our community, such as the Electric Committee, Shared Services, Water/Waste-water, Streets and Law Enforcement. The troubling issues we as residents face can be solved with a strong team of village officials. I offer my dedication, business experience, and solid work ethic to this cause and would welcome the opportunity to help make this a better and more prosperous village."
Rizzo, his wife, Heidi, son Devin and daughter Lorin reside in Brocton where they are members of St. Dominic Church and proud supporters of the community.
