At its biennial reorganization meeting this week, the Seneca County Democratic Committee elected new officers.
David Wood (Town of Ovid) stepped into the chair’s position held by Susan Ottenweller (Town of Fayette). After a career in the military and government, Wood retired to Ovid and became involved in community efforts including various planning boards, the STEPS program, and the formation of the Ovid Farmers’ Market. He is currently a Village of Ovid Trustee. He and his wife Marylinda also take every occasion to enjoy New York’s incredible outdoor recreational opportunities as often as possible.
In the committee’s other selections, Ruth Same (Town of Seneca Falls), the committee’s longtime former secretary, and Robert Meek (Town of Ovid) became vice chairs. Jean Currie (Town of Ovid) took on the committee’s secretary duties, and Rachel Weil (Town of Seneca Falls) assumed the treasurer’s responsibilities.
The 47 county committee members include representatives from each of the 10 towns in the county, and its officers are chosen every two years.
