Canandaigua Town Supervisor Cathy Menikotz will not seek another term.
That decision came on Monday, in an emailed statement to the FingerLakes1.com newsroom.
“It has been the opportunity of a lifetime to serve the residents of Canandaigua for the last two years. I am humbled by the unwavering support of so many people whom I have had privilege to serve,” she said. “After a great deal of discussion with my family, I have decided that I will once again be returning to the practice of law and will not seek a second term as Town Supervisor. I look forward to staying engaged in community affairs and continuing to give back as a volunteer. I am excited for the future of Canandaigua. We are fortunate to live in a place where so many residents, town officials, employees and volunteers are passionate about our community.”
Former Canandaigua Town Supervisor Greg Westbrook announced earlier this year that he would run for that office again.
He left office in September 2018 after being appointed to the top-office in 2017. At the time he cited not having enough time to fulfill the requirements of the job.
In his announcement- Westbrook said he was prepared to run a primary if necessary.
