Moravia resident Mark Strong was recently appointed as legislator in Cayuga County’s District 9.
Taking a seat on the Cayuga County Legislature wasn’t something on his radar. In fact, he said that the entire thing came as a total ‘shock’.
The Auburn Citizen recently profiled Strong, who was tapped to fill out the remainder of the District 9 term.
“Everybody said, ‘I think you should, Mark. I think you’ll be good at it,'” he told The Citizen. “‘You’ll speak for those people (in District 9) because you know them. You’re just like them.'”
Strong is a 29 year veteran of the Moravia Fire Department and retired corrections officer.
