NEW CANANDAIGUA TOWN BOARD MEMBER APPOINTED
(Canandaigua, NY) – The Town Board of the Town of Canandaigua has announced 15 residents were recently interviewed for the vacant Town Board seat. A vacancy existed on the Town Board after Greg Westbrook was appointed Town Supervisor, following the election of Pam Helming to the New York State Senate.
“The outpouring of interest and support from residents of the Town of Canandaigua was very encouraging,” said Town Supervisor Greg Westbrook. “The residents who spoke with the board members during the interview process, expressed strong support for giving back to their community and the continued professional development of the Town during the past three years.”
While many strong candidates were considered, the Town Board has appointed Linda Dworaczyk to serve as one of its members until the end of the year. Retired from corporate life with financial, engineering and manufacturing backgrounds, Dworaczyk describes herself as a business manager, strategic thinker, and problem solver looking for meaningful volunteer work.
Deputy Town Supervisor Keith Cutri said, “I was impressed with the balanced analytical and professional experience Linda brings to the table. As a volunteer certified mediator for the Center for Dispute Settlement, Linda certainly understands the importance of listening to all sides of the issues and giving considerations to all involved.”
Dworaczyk has been appointed to fill the Town Board vacancy until December 31, 2017.
Residents of the Town of Canandaigua will be able to elect individuals for the position of Town Supervisor, 2 – Town Board seats, and to fill the unexpired term Town Board position during the upcoming elections for terms which would begin January 1, 2018.
