Board appoints Wright to town attorney post
ELLICOTT -- The Ellicott Town Board has a new attorney.
Jamestown attorney Ken Lasker, who has been town attorney seven of the past eight years, has resigned. Supervisor Pat Tyler said Lasker stepped down because he has become a full partner in the local firm of Burgett and Robbins.
Tyler said the board unanimously approved William Wright Jr. to succeed Lasker.
"He is willing to step in. He does the Planning and Zoning boards also, and that won't be a conflict. We're very happy with Bill. He was one of the ones I suggested right away," Tyler said.
