Where we live: West Seneca

West Seneca

It looks like there will be a primary election for a seat on the Town Board.

Dave Monolopolus, who lives in the Lexington Green neighborhood, has announced he will challenge Eugene Hart for the Democratic line in this fall’s elections. Hart, the incumbent completing his first term, received the endorsement of the Democratic Committee in May.

A longtime resident of the town, Monolopolus is a graduate of West Seneca West High School and has worked more than 30 years managing meat departments in local supermarkets. He’s also a life member and former officer of Union Fire Co., former chairman of the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals and a volunteer member of the town’s Environmental Commission.

Monolopolus emerged as a community leader after flooding devastated the Lexington Green neighborhood in 2014.

The primary election is Thursday, Sept. 10.
