Where we live: Orchard Park

Orchard Park

Orchard Park Republicans have endorsed Patrick Keem for supervisor, setting up a rematch of the contest for supervisor four years ago.

In 2009, Keem faced off against then-Town Clerk Janis Colarusso, who won the top spot by 87 votes.

A dentist, Keem is the founder and owner of Aurora Dental Care in East Aurora. He is the past chairman of the Erie County Citizens’ Budget Review Commission, and served on the Erie County Records Commission, Orchard Park Public Safety and Comprehensive Plan Implementation committees.

The Orchard Park Republican Committee also has endorsed incumbent Councilman Eugene Majchrzak and former Assistant Police Chief Michael Sherry for Town Board seats.
