1 5 town, 2 county positions unopposed The Chronicle-Express, Penn Yan, N.Y., October 31,1990 - Page 3 RESUME SERVICES ■. Voters in the towns of Tbrrey * - ind Starkey will elect coundlmen the Nov. 6 election, while the ■ town erf' Benton and Barrington . wiV elect a town justice, and Milo ; voters will select a highway super- ;• intendent. Legislative IXstrict 1 voters will select a le^slator and a coroner’s position will be seen on ballots county-wide. All persons running for the T posts are seeking the jobs on the Republican Party line and all are unopposed. Running unopposed for a seat on the county Legislature 4 from District #1 (Italy, Jerusalem, 1, lA, 2, 3 & Middlesex), Leslie 1 . Pitzwater is a county board 'veteran having served on the 1 . Legislature for the past 17 years ^and as chairman of the Legisla- 1 ture from 1985 to 1989. 1 Pitzwater, 64, an insurance . agent who lives a t 705 Italy Valley Road in the Tbwn of Italy, is also , to'.vn supervisor. • Pitzwater cited the rising demand in mandated programs by the state and federal governments as having a potentially adverse ef­ fect on Yates County. J I t falls,” he stated, “on local ■* taxpayers to have to pay for ^ e s e mandated programs and that places a severe burden on them.” Pitzwater, one of the two Yates County representatives, along with fellow Legislator James Mul­ ler, to serve on the Western Fin­ ger Lakes Solid Waste Manage­ ment Authority, also believes that solid waste remains a critical 2 problem facing the county. “Solid waste,” he stressed, “is not only a problem now, b u t could easily a greater problem in the future. “It’s an issue that we have to address,” Pitzwater concluded, “especially with the mandated closure and cleanup of the Ibirey landfill.” Seeking th e position of county coroner is Gary Boardman, an in­ cumbent. Theodore Spence of Log Cabin Road, a Tbwn of Tbrrey Councilman for the past 10 years, will again be running for election Tuesday, Nov. 6. He says there aren’t too many problems in the 27-square mile Tbwn of Tbrrey, but one thing he would like to see is a Tbwn of Tbr- rey Fire District. Spence believes that it would be in the best interests of the town to have a fire department of its own. He asserts, “The way it is now is awkward. It works now b u t the town pays 70 percent of the bill for the equipment (owned by the Dresden Fire Department) and has no control over its use.” He continues, \The Village of Dresden Fire Department is a good organization and they provide good service, however, I just think it would be better for the town to have its own.” In th e Town of Starkey, Republican James Ritter will running for election into a full term as town councilman. Ritter filled the position in April after longtime Councilman Richard Nelson resigned. According to Robert Murphy, Starkey Tbwn clerk, Ritter was selected for the position because, “He’s young; he’s a resident; he’s a grape farmer and we fee] he represents his townslup well and works well with the other board members.” Ritter has 25 years experience as a farmer and has owned his own farm for the past 4 years. He says his reasons for becom­ ing a councilman are his genuine interest in local affairs and con­ cern for the future of Starkey. He asserts, “There are so many people moving into this area. It will cause a lot of special problems. I have an interest in making sure that the town grows, but in the right way.” According to Ritter, \the right way” means getting the best of both worlds, “making sure that it stays rural but expanding, in­ creasing employment and creating jobs here too.\ In Milo, B ruce FuUagar, ac­ ting highway superintendent, won the Republican primary for that position in September with a con­ vincing 433 votes. He runs Nov. 6, unopposed. Fuilagar has been acting as highway superintendent since February and before that he was deputy superintendent. His work history includes working for the highway department full time for the past 10 years. Prior to that he worked as a greens keeper for Lakeside Country Club for 14 years and worked part-time for the highway department. Heading into the election, Ful- lagar said he believes one of the most important aspects of the su­ perintendent’s job is to be aware of what the priorities are and to get the job done. A fter narrow ly defeating Ken Austerman by nine votes in the Republican primary on Sept. 11, Ellen Hoban will be up for election unopposed for Tbwn of Benton justice, on Nov. 6. Hoban was unanimously ap­ pointed as Benton Tbwn justice by the Benton Tbwn Board in April, after the death of Justice Leland Schroeder, and assumed her duties in May of this year. Hoban has been a lifelong resi­ dent of this area and an active member of the community. After working for 17 years at the Security Tkust Company, she took an early retirement in 1983. She is a past president of the Penn Yan Area Chamber of Com­ merce and has assisted with the Keuka Arts Festival for the past 11 years. She has also served as a Republican Committee member for the Tbwn of Benton and as lady cice-chairman of the Yates (bounty Republican Committee. Since she was first appointed as justice, Hoban has been attending special judiciary classes and this fall attended a special Driving While Intoxicated Course. Hoban and her husband have three children, James Patrick, Polly Ann and Michael Francis. F r a n k Gifford of John Greene Road in the Town of Barrington is running for his third consecutive, four-year term as Barrington Town justice. He is again running unopposed and believes, “I have a pretty good chance of winning.\ GilTord has been an active jus­ tice, working with teens in the Dundee High School. He has visited members of the senior class a t Dundee and discussed his responsibilities as justice and what their responsibilities are as citizens. He asserts, Tve been trying to let them know that we (judges and police) are not ogres. We’re not here to get them in trouble. We are here to help. Gifford believes that in the fu­ ture as justice, he will try to work even more closely with law enfor­ cement officers and with young people. “We plan in the near future to hold a mock trial to let young people see how the law works,” he said. Gifford and his wife, Joan have five children. In addition to being a town justice, he sells lumber and siding and also works at Dundee Auto Supply. • Composition • Printing ♦ Maifing • J o b S e a rch R.J. lANNELLO. M.S.

They are too perishable. There is no way to store them either as a grower or processor.” The concensus of the growers at the hearing seemed to be that ^ there is a need for modification of “^pricing procedures. TVezise insisted, “There is a great division in the industry on this point. Some think it should be thrown out altt^ether. Others feel it should be amended.” Pierce said he believes that the current law provides needed security for growers yet measures should be taken to allow buyers Oand sellers to mutually agree to a different, amicable price if market conditions warrant it. Many of the growers, including Eric Amberg of Amberg Wine Cel­ lars of Clifton Springs, noted what he believes is a “misguided per­ ception of what wine is.” He stres­ sed that the social and moral climate of the times has been giving wine and winemakers a 3 “bum rap.” Rerce agreed asserting that “when the government attempts to pass an 800 percent excise tax increase and then tax us for making and selling wine, it makes us feel as if weYe being singled out. It’s not equitable.” Davidsen responded by explain­ ing that commodities such as wine, liquor, beer and cigarettes have been traditionally perceived as luxuries with a negative stig- matism. He stated, “It has been the federal government’s view that you don’t get as much heat for raising taxes on beer or wine.” He continued, \These proposals are not morally motivated. The hidden agenda is that we don’t have enough money to run the government. I think we may be to the point in taxation where we may create a decrease in business. It becomes regressive; raised taxes, decreased revenue.” He assured those in attendance, “We are going to continue to lobby at our congressional delegation even more to point out the scope and importance of the wine in­ dustry nationwide.” According to Davidsen, he will be holding at least one more of these public hearings over the proposed federal occupational tax, the proposed federal excise tax and New York’s grape pricing pro­ cedures.
