Cheektowaga Town Board member Diane Benczkowski announced Saturday her candidacy for supervisor.
Mary Holtz two weeks ago announced she was retiring as supervisor, after 40 years in town government.
Benczkowski, a Democrat, was elected to the town board in 2013.
“In my first year on the town board, I was proud to be a part of passing a budget that reflected a property tax decrease and I plan to continue that trend as Town Supervisor," Benczkowski said in a statement. “Stricter code enforcement to eliminate blight; transparency; economic development; and listening to residents’ concerns have been some of the accomplishments I am proud of."
Town Clerk Alice Magierski announced a week ago that she intends to seek the Cheektowaga Town Democratic Committee endorsement for supervisor.
