Cheektowaga Councilwoman Christine Adamczyk will assume the post of deputy supervisor, taking over the post from Brian Nowak, who served in the role since August 2018, Supervisor Diane Benczkowski announced Wednesday.
The appointment is effective immediately.
“Councilmember Adamczyk’s values are more in line with my vision as to what is needed to work with me to meet the challenges ahead,” Benczkowski said.
Adamczyk has served on the board since 2014.
Nowak recently challenged Benczkowski on a number of issues, most recently her decision to cancel the townwide assessment, which was later reinstated by a Town Board vote. Benczkowski and Nowak clashed again over the supervisor's proposed $92.8 million budget, specifically funding cuts to the town's two libraries and youth and recreation programs.
