Tonight the Seneca County Board of Supervisors will hold its reorganizational meeting at the County Office Building in Waterloo.
The major question heading into the night is whether Varick Supervisor Bob Hayssen, or Waterloo Supervisor Don Trout will be named chairman.
Both are Republicans, who hold an overwhelming majority on the board. However, the votes of two Democrats, plus a supervisor without a party affiliation will be crucial. Waterloo Supervisor James Cleere and Fayette Supervisor Cindy Lorenzetti are those Democrats. Meanwhile, Lodi Supervisor Kyle Barnhart, the unaffiliated board member, rounds out those who cast most influence over the vote.
Republicans appear to be split on who they will support heading into the session on Monday.
New members of the board include Seneca Falls Supervisor Mike Ferrara, Romulus Supervisor David Hayes, Ovid Supervisor Joseph Borst, Supervisor Barnhart, Supervisor Cleere, and Waterloo Supervisor Michael Enslow.
Check tonight for breaking coverage of the board’s meeting, as they choose new leadership for 2020.
