“Paul R. Nicosia has given dedicated service to the Town of Clarendon since 1989, serving on the Town Planning Board, Board of Assessment Reviews and the Town Board for 33 years with respect, dependability and honesty, making decisions resulting in the best benefit for the entire community and never individual gain: always fair-minded and caring,” the declaration states.

“Paul believes that public water for the residents is an important commodity and has helped the town through 13 water districts and the start of #14!”

“It is with regret that we see Paul leave the Town Board.”
