Search for Brochey's replacement is on in the Village of Lewiston

Niagara Gazette — With just weeks left in 2013, minds in the Village of Lewiston are wondering what exactly will happen when Dennis Brochey takes his new job.

Elected to be town supervisor two weeks ago, Brochey, a village board trustee, will vacate his position to lead the town's government. Mayor Terry Collesano said he's looking for people who may want to replace him.

"We're conducting interviews soon," Collesano said following Monday's village board meeting. "Anyone interested should call the clerk's office to set up an appointment."

Brochey, a Democrat, joined four Republicans on the village board last summer after he and Nicholas Conde, a Republican, won election against Republican Ernest Krell and Democrat Therese Mudd, his running mate.

But Collesano didn't suggest Monday political affiliation would have anything to do with finding a candidate to replace the departing trustee. Instead, he said qualifications are to "be a village resident and of legal age."

One thing Collesano did stress, though, is the replacement would likely be asked to run for election in June, when the position would be up for a two-year term to finish the remainder of Brochey's elected position.

Those interested should contact village clerk Anne Welch at 754-8271.
