NEWFANE—At the Dec. 18 regular Selectboard meeting, the Board voted to appoint Shelly Huber to the vacant seat left by former Selectboard Chair Carol Hatcher.
Hatcher resigned in early December, citing health concerns.
Huber expressed interest in the position, and told Board members, “I’m civic-minded, and I love Newfane, and want to contribute.”
“We really appreciate that you stepped up and offered your assistance, because we really need it,” Board Chair Marion Dowling said.
After the Town Clerk administered the oath of office to Huber, she joined her colleagues at the Selectboard table.
Huber’s term ends on March 6 at Town Meeting.
