Ontario Town Supervisor Frank Robusto says he’ll run for re-election despite no confidence vote

No confidence.

It doesn’t happen that often, but when a governing body of a town or county votes ‘no confidence’ in one of its members, the news is typically met with concerns about the future.

The Ontario Town Board took that step on Monday, voting no confidence by a 4-1 margin, stating they no longer have faith in Supervisor Frank Robusto.

In fact, Robusto was the only person to vote against no confidence.

The Republican has been criticized for an array of reasons, including town checks bouncing, as well as retaliation against Town employees and improper notice of public meetings.

For his part, Robusto said he was surprised by the vote. He plans to run for re-election despite the no confidence vote and called it political theater because board members have opted to support his opponent.
