Passing the moderator’s gavel in Newfane

Town Meeting in March 2024 will be my last as Newfane town moderator. The time has come to hand the gavel to someone new. I will not be seeking reelection.

Town moderator is an elected position with a one-year term. To be on the ballot, candidates for the position must submit a petition with 15 signatures of Newfane voters to the town clerk no later than 5 p.m. on Jan. 29, 2024.

I thank Newfane voters for allowing me the honor of moderating municipal meetings for the past 16 years, and I'm glad to answer questions about the position for anyone interested.
