Williamson Supervisor Tony Verno will lead Wayne County supervisors: All Republican board votes unanimously

Williamson Town Supervisor Tony Verno has been appointed as the new chair of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors for 2024.

The all-Republican board, featuring seven new members, made this decision during their annual organizational meeting on Tuesday.

Verno, succeeding Phil Eygnor of Huron, was chosen in a closed-door GOP caucus, over Macedon’s Kim Leonard.


His selection was made without a public vote, emphasizing unity within the board. Walworth Supervisor Mike Donalty has been named as the vice chair and majority leader.

According to the Finger Lakes Times, Verno expressed his ambition to initiate impactful projects during his term, citing the redevelopment of the Butler Correctional Facility as a potential focus.

He also has a notable history with the Pultneyville Fire Department and played a significant role in establishing the Wayne County Emergency Medical Services department. His professional experience includes a 32-year tenure at Scriba’s nuclear power plants, now operated by Constellation Energy.
