Pencille stays in race for Shelby Town Supervisor

Posted 8 October 2017 at 8:00 pm


I just wanted to let voters in the Town of Shelby know that I’m not out of the race for Town of Shelby Supervisor. I’m going to run as a write-in candidate.  I have several reasons for this decision.

The proposed stone quarry is one of the biggest issues to hit the town in a very long time and it has strong implications for our residents and the future of the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge.

I think that after nearly 12 years of information sessions and public forums on the quarry, the candidate for Shelby Town Supervisor should have a solid opinion on the issue. My opponent does not.

I believe that the discussions regarding shared services and taxation in the village deteriorated too quickly due to politics, and I believe there is progress that could be made on that front. I believe that my experiences with shared services between the Lyndonville and Medina schools over the past 7 years could help in that area.

I don’t necessarily think that a career appointed public servant is the best candidate for the job. I believe that my administrative and research-based work experience, along with my service on the Medina School Board for the past 8 years is more than relevant to the job of Town Supervisor.

I believe that the Town Board needs new blood who are willing to be transparent and forthright with the public.

The town has over 2,900 registered voters, but only 351 voted in the primary. I’d like to give the rest of the registered voters a chance to voice their opinion about these issues and others that face the town.

I’ll be circulating information on how to vote for a write-in candidate in the coming weeks and I would welcome your support on November 7.
