Anne Sapienza

Bergen Town Board

My first term is coming to an end and I’ve made the decision to run again in November. As 2021 moves on I will send out info and answer questions. Serving at the local level is very rewarding.

Helen Trowbridge Hanes

Pembroke Town Board

 I am Helen Trowbridge Hanes and I am honored to run for the Town of Pembroke Board. I have lived in the town since 1992. I am now semi-retired after working in nonprofits that support persons with disabilities for over 40 years. I now have the time to invest in the Town of Pembroke and its citizens by bringing my experience, love of the town, and enthusiasm to the office if elected.

I grew up in Corfu on a small family farm which gives me a unique perspective for the position.

I can be reached at [email protected]

I sincerely ask for your support and hope to be able to serve.

Robert Fussell

LeRoy Town Council 

I'm looking forward to running for LeRoy's Town Board. I feel that I will represent the citizens of LeRoy in a beneficial way. I've lived in LeRoy my entire life. My wife Stacey and I have two daughters. I'm employed as an academic teacher with the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in Attica. LeRoy's current Town Board needs some diversification. If elected I will bring a fresh new perspective on issues.

Carol DiFrancisco

LeRoy Town Justice

My name is Carol DiFrancisco and I am the LeRoy Democratic Party candidate for Town Justice, what an honor! As the campaign continues I will share more resume type details but for now I will tell you a little bit about myself.

I retired last July after 35 years as an English teacher at LeRoy High. I was fortunate to be able to spend my entire career at one school district and was also fortunate that I loved my job every day of those 35 years. I worked as a substitute this year back at LeRoy to cover teachers who were out due to the virus and call me crazy, but I loved subbing as well. In my spare time I love to read, knit, refinish furniture, and shop a little too much online.

I have one son, Alex, who is a Physician Assistant at Roswell Cancer Center. He and his wife Lisa reside in Clarence and have a beautiful 2 year old, Gino, and another son due in September. I am blessed with boys!

Sarah Krezmien

LeRoy Town Council 

  My name is Sarah Krzemien but many remember me as Sarah Nugent. I was raised in Leroy and attended Holy Family and graduated from Leroy High School. Im a first responder, political scientist, and mother of two beautiful girls. My partner is active in the US Army. I am a proud progressive and activist. I am running for Town Board to keep Leroy the beautiful small town that it is! I am very accessible and believe all politicians should be. I am here to listen and represent you!
