The Town Supervisor is the Town’s chief elected official. New York State Law requires a town’s chief elected official to hold the title of “Supervisor” whereas the chief elected officials in villages and cities are called “Mayor." As Chair of the Board, she presides over all Town Board meetings which are open to the public. The Supervisor and Council Members propose legislation and make policy decisions that directly affect residents. Mindful of both long-term goals and short-term objectives, the Supervisor responds to the needs of the community and represents the Town in its dealings with County, State and Federal Agencies.
