West Seneca races taking shape

West Seneca Democrats endorsed Gene Hart for supervisor, but at least one of his opponents plans to challenge him in the primary.

Hart, who currently serves as a councilman on the Town Board, won the endorsement Tuesday. James Lawson, a former School Board member, said he will submit petitions to run against Hart.

Former Supervisor Paul T. Clark said he also is considering mounting a primary challenge to Hart.

Whoever wins the primary will face retired FBI Special Agent Gary Dickson, the Republican Party's endorsed candidate for supervisor.

Also endorsed by the town GOP are Jeff Piekarec and Susan Kims for four-year council positions and Brendon Najm for the two-year council seat.

Democrats endorsed Joe Cantafio and Nicole Herkey for the four-year seats on the Town Board and Bill Bauer for the two-year seat.

Two councilmen will be added to the three-member Town Board Jan. 1, and one of the new board positions will be a two-year term for this election only.

Thomas C. Reese II was endorsed for highway superintendent, Deputy Town Clerk Amy M. Kobler was endorsed for town clerk and Town Justice Shannon E. Filbert for re-election.
