Geneva City Supervisor Greg Bendzlowicz is resigning.
The Finger Lakes Times reports Bendzlowicz announced at Thursday’s organizational meeting that he will be moving to Naples with his fiancé. “I am truly honored to have been part of this outstanding board,” he told fellow supervisors. “I thoroughly enjoyed my time on this board and serving my community, city, county and state.”
Bendzlowicz, a retired Geneva police detective and lieutenant, was first elected to the board in 2013. He was re-elected in 2017 and again in November for a four year term. It’s up to the Geneva City Council to appoint a temporary replacement until a special election can be held this November. The person chosen would serve the rest of Bendzlowicz’ term and could choose to run for re-election in 2025.
Also Thursday, Jack Marren was appointed as chair of the County Board of Supervisors for a tenth term.
