Wallace seeking re-election as Town of Niagara supervisor

TOWN OF NIAGARA – Town Supervisor Lee Wallace has announced his bid for re-election.

If elected, it would represent his first full term as supervisor.

Wallace, a Democrat, won a special election last year called for by the Town Board to fill the remaining term of Steven Richards, who resigned as part of a plea deal in federal court after being charged with numerous counts related to public corruption.

Wallace, who is 61, has been an employee of the town for more than 40 years and also has served as recreation director.

“I am humbled and honored to be your town supervisor and I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead,” he said in a statement. “My promise to you is that we will continue to work hard to make the Town of Niagara an excellent place to live, work and play. We will be creative, responsive and respectful in providing innovative and cost-effective services to our community, residents and businesses.”

The most recent of his accomplishments since taking office in January inmvolves the development of a long-term strategic master plan for the town. He said he wants to focus on how the town could be “fiscally creative as we search for alternative revenue sources and be flexible enough to embrace an ever-changing and growing community.”
