Have A Question?

Submit Your Question to the Town Supervisor!

Happy New Year! I can’t believe how fast the last year went by, along with how quickly the midpoint of my term of office came up! The first two years as your Supervisor were a whirlwind of meetings, projects, and events, and the first few weeks of the new year have been no different. Serving two masters (Town and County) is a juggling act at best, but the end result is the satisfaction of knowing that I'm serving both those communities to the best of my ability.

I am eternally grateful to all of you who had the confidence in my abilities to allow me to serve as your Supervisor, and I look forward to continuing to be a responsible steward of your Town, as well as your representative to the County Board of Supervisors. And of course, I would be nowhere if not for the guidance and direction of the Town Board, who always have the best interests
of the Town in all they do as well. Last but certainly not least, each and every one of our Town employees performs admirably every day, providing the services and support necessary to keep the Town running smoothly and serving our residents, visitors, and businesses.

To give you a better snapshot of my additional duties as your County representative, I serve along with the fourteen other Town Supervisors as a member of the Board of Supervisors, which is the legislative body of the County. Under New York State law, counties are governed either by a Board of Supervisors, as in Wayne County, or a County Legislature, such as is the case in neighboring Monroe County. In addition to my role as the Walworth representative to the Board, I am also the Vice Chairman of the County Board, the Majority Leader of the Republican affiliated Board membership, and the Chairman of the Public Safety Committee of the Board. I also sit on the Human Services and Government Operations committees and have been appointed to the Local Emergency Planning Committee and the County’s Negotiating Committee, which represents the County in labor negotiations with the County’s several employee labor unions. Additionally, I sit on the Advisory Board of the Wayne County Child Advocacy Center and the Wayne County Regional Land Bank Board of Directors. Not a week goes by that I am not traveling to at least one meeting at the County Courthouse in Lyons, but always remember that my first priority is to the Town of Walworth and its residents.

As a Town, we have accomplished much in the past year, and there is much more to come. I am confident that your Town government has been successful in keeping your taxes low while operating at peak efficiency and moving projects to completion to the benefit of most if not all our residents. We are anxious to start some new projects in the coming months as well as complete some that have been unfinished and hope that you will join us welcoming some of the new additions, such as the recently completed and now open K2 at Freewill on Canandaigua Road. The Kennedy family had a vision to take a long-vacant elementary school and turn it into
a world-class craft brewing operation and retail food and beverage establishment, which we hope will be the cornerstone of future development to make Walworth a destination rather than pass-through. Our collective hats off to the family for the contribution to their new community, and we look forward to their continued expansion. Watch our website and social media sites for frequent updates on ongoing and upcoming projects and events.

I wish you all the best for a safe and healthy new year. I, along with the Town Board and your Town staff, look forward to continuing to provide a high level of customer service to you and your families for 2024 and beyond.

We thank you for your continued support!
