LIMA – The Livingston County Conservative Party announced their endorsement of Michael Falk for Lima Town Supervisor on Tuesday.
Incumbent Pete Yendell announced earlier in May that he will be retiring from public office.
“The recent announcement that Supervisor Pete Yendell will not be seeking reelection, leaves an open seat in the Town of Lima,” posted the Conservative Party to their website. “Sadly, the Livingston County Conservative Party is looking at empty storefronts, and a vacant lot where the town’s only grocery store formerly sat. Lima Conservatives are looking for an individual who recognizes that government can be a friend to the business community. The Party has chosen Michael J. Falk as its candidate. Falk is an Eagle Scout, veteran of the Gulf War, and a soldier who completed his military service as a Captain. He holds a Master Degree in Systems Management. Mr. Falk is a small business owner, and active in volunteer capacities as the President of Lima’s German Club and the Crossroads Council, which helps local businesses hold the annual Crossroads Blues Festival. Mike Falk brings a fresh perspective and positive solutions to the community. He will serve Lima residents and all of Livingston County well as a town supervisor.”
There is no other formal word on other candidates coming forward for this office.
“Regarding the races for Town Supervisor, the Conservative Party has currently opted to endorse in three of the twelve seats up for election this November,” posted the Conservative Party. “The Party will be actively involved in the Conesus, Lima and Livonia races for Town Supervisor, and continues conversation with additional candidates seeking this level of office in other towns.”
