Dr Christakos wishes to run for the Parish Council at St Andrew's to contribute to the church as every parishioner should at some point. Just going to church every Sunday is not enough. He believes it is important for everyone to get involved and contribute to the business and functions of the church. Previously he was unable because of his commitments to his profession. Now that he is retired he can more easily contribute and make a difference. Dr Christakos is a retired Thoracic and Vascular Surgeon who previously practiced in Clifton, New Jersey.
He is a graduate of Dartmouth College, SUNY Buffalo Medical School, and Residency in General Surgery in Buffalo and Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery at University of California at Irvine. He is married to Sylvia Christakos and lives in Mendham. They have three adult adult children and are now empty nesters. He believes that he can help the church and make a difference. Thank you. Manny Christakos.
