Frank Schmitter, a registered Republican, will make a bid for the position of town supervisor, appearing on both the Republican and Democratic party lines in the upcoming November elections.


Schmitter defeated incumbent supervisor Mike Ferrara in the Republican primary on June 27. He nominated by Steve Churchill, a current Town Board member, at the Democratic Party caucus on July 18. His nomination was seconded by Tim Hopkins and faced no opposition.

In the race for the two available Town Board seats, Democrats Steve Churchill and Jackson Puylara, a 23-year-old Waterloo Container employee, will run against Republicans Dawn Dyson and newcomer Wendy Crane.

For the town clerk position, the caucus nominated Melissa Brand-Brown, who will be running against Republican Antoinette Noz. Diane Draheim was chosen to run for town justice.
