Retiring Councilman and Wife ‘Will Have a Special Place in Our Hearts for Geneseo’

GENESEO – Departing Town Councilman Jerry Wrubel gave a farewell statement as the coming special Republican caucus to fill his seat goes public.

Wrubel served two of his four-year term before resigning and moving to Knoxville, TN, with his wife, Laura.

“We just decided to move south as so many before us have,” said Wrubel. “There never is a best time to do something like this, and, as much as I enjoyed serving on the Town Board and thought long and hard about the consequences of resigning from the Board, I had faith that there are many talented people in the community who can do just as good a job, if not a better one, than I did.”

He echoed support for incumbent Town Supervisor William Wadsworth. Whoever wins Wrubel’s open seat will serve the remaining two years and could run for re-election in 2019, the same year as Wadsworth.

The caucus is Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Livingston County Government Center, 6 Court Street, Geneseo.

“As in the past, Will Wadsworth has my full support, and I hope that the board will support and enhance his vision for Geneseo now and in the future. Laura and I will always have a special place in our hearts for Geneseo and we both want to see it thrive.

Best wishes,
