Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) presented former Town of Wells Supervisor Brian Towers with a copy of a NYS Senate resolution that passed unanimously honoring him for his outstanding and dedicated service to the residents of Hamilton County.
Towers, who served as the Town Supervisor for the Town of Wells for 22 years, was the town’s longest serving Supervisor since its founding in 1805.
During his term, Supervisor Towers participated in 264 consecutive Town Board meetings with perfect attendance!
"Congratulations to the Cal Ripken “Iron Man” of Hamilton County Public service: Brian Towers. My father would say that part of being successful is showing up and Brian Towers has certainly done that for the people of Wells over and over again," said Tedisco.
Senator Tedisco also visited the Wells Volunteer Fire Company and presented a public protection state grant for $10,000 he secured to help the Fire Company purchase a backup generator.
"These generators are critical because during a power outage we need to make sure our first responders have a backup so they can utilize all their resources to keep people safe," said Tedisco.
